Funnel Cakes

3 eggs
2 c milk
1/4 c white sugar
3 2/3 c flour
1/2 t salt
2 t baking powder
powdered sugar, optional
cinnamon sugar, optional

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together until smooth.  Try and get as many lumps out as you can.  I use a whisk on mine.  May not use all of the flour, but batter needs to be thin enough to run through a funnel.  In a small skillet, heat oil to 375 degrees.  Putting your finger at the bottom of the funnel, fill with a generous 1/2 c of batter.  Hold the funnel close to the surface of the oil, and release the batter into the oil while making a circular motion.  We usually then diagonally criss cross it over the top to seal it together.  Fry until golden brown.  Use tongs and turn the cake over carefully.  Fry the second side one minute.  Drain on paper towels.  Sprinkle with desired amount of sifted powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar!
