Funnel Cakes

Well, what goes with fire works? Funnel cakes I say! 
My daughter and I were thinking that it would be nice to have a funnel cake stand near by.  So we rushed home from watching the fire works and whipped up some up. 
I've never made them before, but they are way easy!  Like about five minutes and were were stuffing our faces sharing this sweet treat..  Ha ha

1 Table spoon sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 cups milk
1/2 cup melted butter

Mix dry ingredients in a med sized bowl.  Then mix milk, egg, and vanilla in another bowl.  Add the wet ingredients into the dry with a mixer. Add melted butter last. Put your mixture into a container with a tip you can put your finger over.  I used a plastic bag with a small tip cut off.  Drizzle in a hot skillet with oil.  This should be very hot but not smoking. 

We had fun making theses. My daughter thought they were the real deal! We did get a little carried away with the powered sugar! 

Thanks for stopping by.  
Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!
