Mr. Food Recipe Of The Day: Easy Funnel Cakes

August 15, 2014 Updated Aug 15, 2014 at 12:49 PM EST

Remember those delectable fried funnel cakes you used to get at the fair? Well, now you can make these Pennsylvania Dutch treats at home with our recipe for Easy Funnel Cakes.

What You'll Need:

2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Oil for frying
Confectioners' sugar for sprinkling
What To Do:

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; mix well.

In a medium bowl, beat eggs, milk, and vanilla until well blended. Add to flour mixture and beat until smooth.

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, heat 1-inch of oil until hot, but not smoking.

Holding a finger over bottom of a funnel with a 5/8-inch opening, pour 1/2 cup of batter into funnel. Drizzle batter into hot oil, swirling it in circles from center outward. Fry until golden, turning once. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar; serve warm.

Notes

Use the batter right away, or it will thicken too much to pass easily through the funnel!
