1 liter canola oil
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs 2 cups milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar, for sprinkling
favorite fruit preserves (optional)
Heat canola oil in deep-fryer to 350 degrees.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk in eggs and milk. (Use 1/2 cup of batter for each funnel cake.) Pour 1/2 cup batter through funnel into hot oil, moving in a circular motion as you do so, to make each spiral-shaped funnel cake. Fry each spiral of batter until golden brown, about 2 or 3 minutes, remove with tongs and lay on paper toweling to absorb oil.
Transfer to a plate and sprinkle powdered sugar through a sieve onto top of hot dough. Serve immediately. Top with your favorite fruit preserves.
