Funnel Cake

Ingredients:
2 large eggs, room temperature
250ml 2% milk
250ml water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
400g all-purpose flour
52g sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Oil for deep frying (enough to cover funnel cake)
Confectionery (Icing) sugar
Vanilla ice cream, for serving

 

Directions:
In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients eggs, milk, water and vanilla extract until well blended.
Slowly combine dry ingredients into wet until completely mixed and there are no lumps. Do not over mix and make sure mixture is smooth.
Pour mixture into a pitcher or squeeze bottle.  In a thick-bottom pot, heat oil to 375°F.
Test oil by dropping a small spoonful of batter in oil. If it rises to surface quickly, oil is ready.
Hold the jug or squeeze bottle with the funnel cake mixture 3-4 inches above the oil (wear an oven mitt for safety).
Pour about 1 cup funnel cake mixture in a spiral motion.
With a slotted spoon carefully fry each side about 2 minutes until golden brown. (Be careful not to splash hot oil)
Remove funnel cake and drain excess oil on paper towels.

Serving:
Place warm funnel cake on a plate, pour about 2 spoons (or more as desired) of strawberry sauce over, sprinkle confectionery sugar and serve.  If available, can be served with vanilla ice cream.
