A fair time favorite of ours is funnel cake. We can't go to the fair or a festival without ordering one. Who says that they have to be limited to the fair? A couple times a year I will make a homemade version. It makes my family happy plus we avoid the long lines and especially the expense.
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbs. sugar
1 cup milk
Whisk together. Pour into a squeezable bottle. Many use the mustard and ketchup bottles from the dollar store. Being the thrifty person that I am, I pulled an old ketchup bottle from the recycle bin to wash and use.
Heat about an inch of oil in a medium sauce to 375*. Squeeze into hot oil in a swirl pattern. Once the bottom browns flip and brown the other side. Drain on a paper towel and serve with your favorite topping.
We prefer powdered sugar, but some other popular toppings are ice cream and a strawberry or blueberry sauce. No matter your choice of topping I know you'll enjoy this treat!
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
