Funnel Cakes!



How about funnel cakes for a fun weekend breakfast?

The ingredients are a variation on pancake batter and it can liven up a cold, snowy morning!

I found a recipe for Funnel Cakes at Taste of Home online and tried it out a while ago and thought I'd share:

 Country Fair Funnel Cake Recipe 
(Taste of Home Magazine)

 Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions


    In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk and brown sugar. 
    Combine flour, baking powder and salt; beat into egg mixture until smooth. 
     In a skillet, heat oil to 375°(I don't have a thermometer, so I just heated until a drop of batter bubbled when dropped into the oil) 
    Cover the bottom of a funnel spout with your finger; ladle 1/2 cup batter into funnel. Holding the funnel several inches above the skillet, release finger and move the funnel in a spiral motion until all of the batter is released (scraping funnel with a rubber spatula if needed).
    Fry for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining batter.Yield:6 servings.


    Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy. Ahhh...feels like summer!
