Mini Funnel Cakes- a taste of the Carnival without the ridiculous $5 price tag!
This is one of the most expensive foods at the fair, but it also happens to be one of the cheapest to make at home! A pinch of this, a dash of that and you’ll have delicious mini funnel cakes in no time. Plus, you can mix all of the dry ingredients ahead of time and store them in the pantry for quick, throw-together treats.
3/4 cup whole milk
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
powdered sugar, garnish
Beat Milk & egg together, set aside.
Combine Flour, sugar, baking soda & salt in a bowl, mix well. Add beaten milk/egg to flour mix, whisking to incorporate.
Transfer to a Squeeze bottle (old washed out ketchup bottle or condiment bottle, etc) Let it set while the oil heats (about 10 minutes). As the name “Funnel Cake” implies, you can also use a small funnel to drip the batter into the fryer.
Heat (about 2 cups) oil in a deep skillet or frydaddy until it hits 365F.
When oil is hot, drizzle batter in a spiral pattern into the hot oil. Cook about 35-40 seconds per side (you want them golden brown).
Remove from oil, drain on paper towels or lint free cloth.
Sprinkle liberally with powdered cinnamon & Sugar.
