Full of fat and fun!

About this time of year in the Ozarks, we get all “hepped” up.  We’ve been watching Steal your Dollar Hollar commercials for about a month and we know the funs about to begin. (Yes, I jokingly call it Steal your Dollar Hollar, but also please note that I love SDC and it’s totally worth the cash!)

Meaning 50 bazillion tourists are coming down to gawk at us hillbillies and taste all our viddles.

Well, I would hate for anyone to feel left out, so I thought I’d share my recipe for Funnel Cakes.  It’s easy, cheap and a ton of fun to do with the kiddos.

2 beaten egg
1 1/2 c. milk
2 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2-3 c. of cooking oil

Combine eggs and milk.  Sift flour, baking powder and salt.  Add to egg mixture and beat smooth.  If too thick, add more milk.  If too thin, add flour. (You want like pancake mix).  Heat oil to 360 degrees.  Pour 1/2 c. into  a funnel.  Fry till golden brown and using a sifter, sprinkle powdered sugar over the top. *This makes quite a bit, so I would half it if you’re a family of 4.*
