A Victorian Red Hat Lady

After I turned 50 years of age, I had decided I was going to live each day as if it was my last. I will do all the thing I had only dreamed about. I am going to live, love and have fun. Life is to short to worry about tomorrow, just live and enjoy today!

Funnel Cakes

Funnel cake or funnelcake is a regional novelty food popular in the U.S. at carnivals, fairs, sporting events, and seaside resorts.  

Country cookies know this goodie from back when, and they know it's best to get 'em while they're hot!
  • 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Confectioners' sugar for sprinkling
In a large bowl combine the four, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl beat the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and stir just until blended.
Heat 1 inch of oil in a frying pan. Hold your finger over the bottom of a funnel and pour in 1/2 cup of the batter. Holding the funnel over the hot oil, drizzle the batter into the oil.. Cook until golden brown, turn and cook the other side. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
Makes 5-6 servings
