For the Funnel Cakes:

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1½ cups milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Whipped Cream

US Customary – Metric

For the Funnel Cakes:
Heat oil in a pot to about 375 degrees.
Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl until combined.
Next whisk in wet ingredients: milk, eggs and vanilla extract until the batter is nice and smooth.
Add batter to a funnel, squeeze bottle or even a cake decorating piping bag with a round tip.
Once oil is nice and hot, swirl batter in a spirally shape (have fun with this part) into the oil and fry. Turn over once the first side is nice and golden brown.
Once both sides are golden brown, remove from oil and place on paper towels to drain. These babies fry fast!
For Garnish:
Immediately cover with powdered sugar, ice cream, strawberries and whipped cream and serve.
