2/3 cup milk (I used soy milk here.)
2 tbsp white sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
about 2 cups of oil for frying
optional: water, if needed to thin out the batter
In a deep skillet or pan, heat about 2 cups of oil over medium heat until hot while you begin to make the funnel cake batter.
Make sure you test the oil later before pouring the batter in.
Measure out dry ingredients (sugar, salt, flour, and baking powder) in a small bowl.
In a larger bowl, mix the egg and milk together. Once the egg and milk is beaten together, gradually add in your dry ingredients.
The batter will become fairly thick. So if needed, add in some additional water to help make the funnel cake batter smooth.
Test the heated oil and see if it is ready and make sure it is not too hot.
It is is smoking when you do a test drop, turn down the heat a bit and wait.
