Funnel Cakes

Tori... tell your mom they are easy-peasy. Check it out:

FUNNEL CAKES

INGREDIENTS

3 eggs
2 cups milk (whole tastes best)
1/2 cup white sugar
3 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder

You can also add:

cinnamon
vanilla
almond

Or other flavors you enjoy

DIRECTIONS

* In a medium bowl, mix salt, baking powder, and half of the flour. Set aside.

* In a large bowl, cream eggs, sugar and milk. Add flour mixture and beat until smooth. Continue to add remaining flour, but use only enough to achieve desired consistency. Batter will be thin enough to run through a funnel.

* In an eight inch skillet, heat the oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

* Put your finger over the bottom opening of the funnel, and fill the funnel with a generous 1/2 cup of the batter. Hold the funnel close to the surface of the oil, and release the batter into the oil while making a circular motion. Fry until golden brown. Use tongs and wide spatula to turn the cake over carefully. Fry the second side one minute. Drain on paper towels, and sprinkle with sifted confectioners' sugar or cinnamon sugar.

NOTE: Oil must be HOT before you start, or the cakes will soak it up and be soggy.

Okay, we're doing these for breakfast some Sunday after we've been very, very good!

Sorry I haven't been around much - I've had a tough week.

Chris makes us funnel cakes every now and then. They're yummy with whipped cream, too. *G*

And yes, Doo Wop is FUN! I thought I was the only one who liked it! Have you seem the infomercial with Bowser from Sha-Na-Na? *G*

Hope you're having a peaceful Sunday!
