Recipe Directions

  1. Heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees F  (190 degrees C)in a skillet.

    Tip: cooking with hot oil can be dangerous, don’t be tempted to use too much oil otherwise it could bubble over and catch fire.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs, then add the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Stir until smooth.

  3. Move the batter to a jug or similar to help pour it into the cooking oil.

  4. Pour the batter into the hot oil in the skillet in a random fashion to create the traditional lacey like pattern. Leave to cook on one side.

  5. When golden brown, turn the funnel cake over and cook the other side until golden brown. Remove from the oil and serve immediately.

  6. When serving sprinkle with confectioners sugar, top with fresh strawberries, and finish off with some cream.
