8 cups of vegetable oil for frying
1 ½ cups of milk
2 large eggs
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon of salt
¾ cup of confectioners’ sugar
Preheat a deep-fryer or heavy skillet with vegetable oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a large bowl, whisk together milk and eggs until well combined.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, stirring until smooth.
Cover the funnel hole with one hand and pour 1 cup of batter into the funnel.
Starting from the center, pour the batter in a swirling motion to create a 6 or 7-inch round shape.
Fry the batter on both sides until it turns golden brown.
Remove the fried batter and place it on paper towels to drain excess oil.
Sprinkle the fried batter with confectioners’ sugar.
- Serve the funnel cakes warm and enjoy.
