Recipe Ingredients for Funnel Cake

3/4 cup Safflower oil
1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Recipe Directions for Funnel Cake

  1. In a deep-fryer, or heavy skillet, heat 8 CUPS of oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). (3/4 cup will be absorbed into cake batter.)

  2. In a large bowl, beat milk and eggs together. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir into the egg mixture until smooth.

  3. While covering the funnel hole with one hand, pour in 1 cup of batter. Start from the center in a swirling motion to make a 6 or 7 inch round. Fry on both sides until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve warm.

  4. Editor's Note:

  5. We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking (about 3/4 cup, using 8 cups of oil in deep fryer). The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
