Funnel Cakes

C-shaped funnel cake


3 eggs
2 c. milk
1/4 c. sugar
3 to 4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking power


Beat eggs and add sugar and milk. Sift half the flour, salt and baking powder together and add to milk and egg mixture. Beat the batter smooth and add only as much flour as needed. Batter should be thin enough to run through a funnel. Drop from funnel into deep, hot fat (375 degrees). Spirals and endless intricate shapes can be made by swirling and criss-crossing while controlling the funnel spout with finger. Serve hot. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
