Amish Cook's Funnel Cakes.....

Okay, this recipe didn't make the cut for our baking book because we just had too many similar doughy type confections, but, I can attest to the fact that it is a good one. Funnel cakes have a long history in Amish communities.

3 eggs, beaten 2 C. milk 1/4 C. sugar 4 C. flour, sifted 2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt

To beaten eggs, add milk and sugar. In separate bowl sift dry ingredients. Add to egg mixture, beating until smooth. Heat oil to 375ºF and pour batter into hot fat through a regular household funnel. Control the flow of batter by holding your finger over the bottom of the funnel. Make patterns, designs, swirls or whatever with the stream of batter as it flows into the hot fat. When "cakes" are golden brown, drain, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve warm.

WOW...I think you've just wrecked my diet, Kevin.  Wink j/k

Seriously, funnel cakes are awesome, yummy fun!  Always remind me of the carnival.  I think we'll have to try making these this weekend...give us all a boost!

Thanks!  Tongue out

Re: Amish Cook's Funnel Cakes.....

I would LOVE to make these, but it seems to make a lot of batter.  I don't think my family would eat that much at one time.  Can the mixture be frozen?
