  • In a large bowl and add the baking powder, salt, and flour in a bowl and mix together.
  • Then in another bowl add the eggs, sugar, and milk in a bowl and mix until they are creamed. Carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • The batter needs to be thin enough that you can pour it.
  • Pour the batter into a glass measuring cup or a squeeze bottle.
  • Line a plate with paper towels.
  • Add the oil to a heavy skillet so it is 1 - 1.5 inches deep.
  • Heat the oil over medium heat to 375°F.
  • Pour the funnel cake mix in a circular motion to make the well know funnel cake shape, fry until golden brown, and then using kitchen tongs flip it over and fry the other side for about 1 minute.
  • Place your funnel cake on a plate to drain then top with sifted powdered sugar or any other toppings you are wanting.
  • Continue making funnel cakes with the remaining batter until it is all used up.
