Funnel Cakes

Note: The boys woke up this morning and wanted something different for breakfast. What about funnel cakes they suggested? OK. Why not! It is summer. So we made funnel cakes and they were definitely a hit. All we were missing were some fresh strawberries!!

Funnel Cakes

3 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
oil for deep frying
sifted confectioners' sugar

Beat eggs with milk. Sift together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder; add to eggs and milk. Beat until very smooth. Heat oil in deep fryer to 370°. Holding the funnel with one finger keeping the opening closed, fill with batter. Open the end of the funnel and allow batter to run out in a stream into deep hot fat. Move funnel from center, swirling outward in a circular pattern. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer fried funnel cakes to paper towels to drain. Shake sifted confectioners' sugar over drained funnel cakes.
