Submitted by Marcia and Casey Van Camp

2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/3 cups milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
Vegetable oil
Sifted powder sugar (optional)

1. Combine flour, sugar, milk, and eggs in a bowl, beating until smooth
2. Heat 1/4 inch oil to 375 degrees in a skillet
3. Cover bottom opening of a funnel with a finger
(funnel with a 3/8 inch opening works best)
4. Pour 1/4 cup batter into funnel and hold funnel over the skillet
5. Remove finger from the funnel's end to release batter into hot oil; move funnel in a slow, circular motion to form a spiral
6. Fry each funnel cake 1 minute or until edges are golden brown; turn and fry until golden
7. Drain on paper towels
8. Repeat with remaining batter
9. Serve warm and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired
10. This makes about 1 dozen 5 inch cakes
