Funnel Cakes


3 eggs
2cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
3 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
Vegetabl oil


Beat eggs and add sugar and milk. Sift half the flour, salt and baking powder together. Add to milk and egg mixture. Beat batter (in mixer or in food procesor) until smooth, adding only as much flour as needed. Batter should be thin enough to run through funnel. Heat vegetale oil to about 375 degrees in 8 or 9-inch iron skillet-about 3/4-inch deep. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into funnel, keeping finger over bottom of funnel until ready to drizzle batter in hot oil in lace-like pattern. The frying can become an art since all sorts of shapes can be made with twists and turns of the funnel. Let cake brown on one side, turn and brown on other side-whole process takes only a minute or two. Lift from oil, place on plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar ( or syrup, mollasses jelly jam, straberries and cool whip). Eat immediately. Recipe will make 6 to 8 funnel cakes.
