While we were at Silver Dollar City this
month, we just had to look for their
Apple Dumplings with Cinnamon Ice Cream!
Yum, yum!! I took this photo on my cellphone
and sent it to my kids who sent back texts saying
things like "so not fair!" I'm a good parent
that way...I like to share everything I do.
I'm still missing Branson and was
having a "gotta have something sweet moment",
so since I'd been thinking of Branson I
thought...Funnel Cakes...which can be found
in abundance there. So, I just whipped up
a batch of batter and decided to share a couple
of photos and the recipe with you.
2/3 cup milk
2 TB. sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
Oil for frying
In a skillet, heat the oil on medium-high heat until hot.
You can test by dropping a pinch of flour in the oil and
when it sizzles, it's ready.
Beat egg and milk. Mix all the other ingredients in a
separate bowl and add slowly to the egg mixture.
Beat until smooth.
Using a funnel, drop batter into hot oil starting at
the center and working outward in a web pattern.
Cook a couple of minutes until golden and slightly puffed.
Flip over once while cooking.
Then sprinkle with powdered sugar
I couldn't find my sifter so I just used a teaspoon to
sprinkle on the powdered sugar. It really looks
much better to sift the powder over the cake!
It was yummy. I don't have any idea how many
calories are in this, and being a (slight) diabetic I
shouldn't eat this at all. I'll be good tomorrow!
Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.
Until next time...
