Funnel Cakes and 10 Minute Warm Up Wednesday.....WOYWW.......

Hi Everyone....The other night I made these Funnel Cakes and they were amazing! Just like being at the Amusement Park!!!

Funnel Cakes

1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup milk 

1- 2 tbs stroh 45 rum
1 tbs vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 ¼ cup all purpose flour 2 Tbsp sugar
¼ tsp salt
Oil for frying - I used Coconut oil to make them a bit healthier....
Powdered sugar for topping

Mix egg and milk. Sift dry ingredients and gradually add to milk mixture, beat until smooth.

Preheat oil in a shallow fry pan to 375 degrees F.

Pour batter into hot oil with a funnel with a ½ “ or ¾” hole. I saved a container from my Helman's Mayonaise and then used that to squirt the batter into the pan and it worked amazingly......When you squirt or funnel the batter into the hot oil....spiral it so you get the overall effect.....

Cook about 1 minute until a bit golden brown, flip over, cooking both sides. 
Remove and drain on paper towels.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.... I love these with Whipped Cream and chopped Strawberries....or even Vanilla Ice Cream....mmmmmm

and now for my 10 Minute Warm Up.....Since I have strawberries everywhere....How about a quick little cupcake sketch with a Strawberry on top!!!!

Although I don't eat dairy or eggs, I have to say I'm already wondering if there is a vegan alternative to your recipe as they look amazing!!
Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog - I was going to email you but you are a no-reply comment person so I couldn't!
