Cardamom Funnel Cakes
- Vegetable oil for frying*
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 to 1 1/4 cups milk, divided
- Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oil in Presto® Electric Deep Fryer. If using an adjustable thermostat deep fryer, set at 375°.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cardamom, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix eggs and 1 cup milk in a small bowl; pour into flour mixture and stir until smooth. If batter is too heavy, add additional milk. Batter should pour in a heavy stream. Pour about 1/3 cup of batter into funnel. (Hold finger over end as funnel is filled.) Hold funnel over preheated oil in deep fryer; release finger and let batter pour into fryer in a circular pattern. Fry 1 1/2 minutes; turn and fry another 1 1/2 minutes. Fry one funnel cake at a time. Continue until all batter is used. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm with powdered sugar.
*Reference your deep fryer instruction folder for amount of oil needed.
Batter may also be poured slowly in a circular pattern into hot oil from a 2-cup glass measuring cup.
