Funnel Cake

INGREDIENTS

1/4 Cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp Sweet Caramel Seasoning
1-1/2 Cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 tsp brown sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp Apple Pie Spice
1 egg
3/4 Cup milk
1 tsp Vanilla Paste
4-6 Cups frying oil

 

STEPS

Heat oil in a deep fryer (or in a heavy, deep cast-iron skillet) to 360°F.  Combine powdered sugar and Sweet Caramel Seasoning. Set aside.

In one bowl, mix together remaining dry ingredients. In yet another bowl, mix together wet ingredients.

Whist together these wet and dry ingredients to form the cake batter. Transfer the mix to a squeeze bottle or to a plastic ziplock bag with a small cut in the corner.

Squeeze cake batter into the boiling oil in a circular motion, zig-zagging back and forth. It smells really good!

As soon as the batter “sets,” flip the funnel cake and cook until the second side is golden brown.

Use a slotted heat-proof spoon (or long-handled tongs) to remove the cake and allow the excess hot oil to drain on a paper towel-lined plate to cool for a minute. Sprinkle warm funnel cake with the sweet caramel / powdered sugar mixture and enjoy!
