**Outside of the American Adventure is a stand which sells these fried treats. The smell is wonderful and the "cakes" are as big as a plate. Try them topped with strawberries and whipped cream.
Penn Dutch Funnel Cake
Yield: 1 batch
1 1/3 c Flour
1/4 ts Salt
1/2 ts Soda
2 T Sugar
3/4 ts Baking powder
1 Egg; beaten
2/3 c Milk; or more as needed
Oil; for frying
Into a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. In another
bowl, beat the egg and milk together. Add to the dry ingredients,
and beat until smooth.
Fill a skillet or pan with 1 inch of cooking oil and heat to a
temperature of 375 F. Now cover the small hole of a clean funnel
with a finger. Then fill the funnel with the batter. Carefully move
your finger away from the hole in the funnel, allowing the batter to
flow into the skillet. Move the funnel to form patterns with the
batter. Fry until golden brown, about 1 or 2 minutes, turning once
with two spatulas. Remove to paper toweling to drain. Place on a
plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve hot. Repeat the process
until all of the batter is used up.
