Sugary funnel cakes

    Known in the US as funnel cakes, these sugary snacks are often seen at fairgrounds and street carnivals. They are crisp on the outside and soft inside, and taste a little bit like doughnuts or a fried pancake. A dusting with icing sugar is a must!

    1. In a mixing bowl, beat together egg and milk. Beat in flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar and caster sugar until smooth.
    2. Heat cooking oil in frying pan to 190 degrees C.
    3. Pour 120ml batter through funnel into oil with a circular motion to form a spiral. Fry until lightly brown; turn over to brown the other side. Cook to golden brown, and remove to drain on kitchen paper. Sprinkle with icing sugar while still warm.


    Snip the corner off a disposable piping bag to use in place of a funnel; fill with a small amount of batter and squeeze gently.
