Funnel Cake at home

No need to wait for the Fairs or carnivals anymore, you can make this anytime. 

1 cup of milk
1 cup of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 Egg
2 tablespoons of powdered sugar for making the batter and more for dusting
4 cups of vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
Food thermometer
This funnel cake recipe makes 4 large funnel cakes.
Heat oil to 375 degrees in a large skillet. While the oil is heating, beat the egg and milk together in one bowl and combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and powdered sugar in another bowl. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until the batter is smooth.When the oil has reached 375 degrees, pour the batter into a funnel, holding your finger over the small opening. We did a practice run to make sure the batter was not too thick. We just removed a finger from the opening and poured the batter back into the bowl, making sure it poured out easily. Hold the funnel with the batter over the oil and make a circle with your hand repeatedly to form the cake. We noticed when we added the batter it cooled the oil somewhat and we needed to turn the heat up on the oil.
Fry until the bottom has turned golden brown and turn over and fry the other side.
When both sides are golden brown, remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
You'll want to serve these warm with some powdered sugar dusted on top.
