County Fair Funnel Cakes



2 large eggs

1 cup milk

1 cup water

1 tsp. vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

3 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

Oil for deep-fat frying

Powdered sugar, for serving


Heat oil to 375°F in a deep-fat fryer or larger heavy-bottomed skillet.

In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, water, and vanilla until well blended. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; whisk until smooth.

Cover the bottom of a funnel spout with your finger and carefully ladle ½-cup batter into the funnel. Hold the funnel several inches above the oil and release your finger, moving the funnel in a spiral motion until all of the batter has flowed out of the funnel. Scrape with a rubber spatula if necessary.

Fry 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown, using tongs to flip once. Drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar; serve warm.

Repeat step 3 and 4 with remaining batter.
