Homemade Funnel Cakes

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
1 egg

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!
