Crispy Spider Webs {Mini Funnel Cakes}

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Cup milk
  • 3 2/3 Cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • oil for frying
  • powdered sugar for toping
  • black icing for decorating or chocolate

Instructions

  • Beat the eggs and sugar together until smooth. Carefully beat in the milk. Add the dry ingredients except for the powdered sugar and beat this until smooth with no lumps.
  • Now, set aside in the fridge until ready to fry the cakes OR place half the mixture into a gallon sized plastic bag and seal, letting all the air out.
  • In a heavy bottom skillet, place about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of oil and let heat up. You can test the oil by spooning in just a little bit of the batter into the oil, if it pops up immediately with tiny bubbles around it it’s ready.
  • With a scissors, snip a tiny hole in one of the bottom points of the bag so now you have a funnel. Carefully pour some of the batter into the hot oil using your new funnel. Do this by making a small circle and zig zag lines into the oil so the batter forms a small “web” or circle. Let fry until golden brown and carefully flip this over with a tong. Let the other side get golden brown. This only takes about 2 minutes each side. Now, let drain on a wire rack over a deep baking dish. Keep repeating until you have made as many cakes as you want.
  • When they are cool to the touch, sprinkle with powder sugar you can put in a fine mesh colander.

Notes

For the decorating. You can find this black icing in the baking aisle. I got mine in the Halloween section and its a glittery black… so fancy! You want to make lines across the cakes so they meet in the middle. Next, draw two circles, one bigger and one smaller so it resembles a spiders web. Yummy! You can also use chocolate syrup or if you’re super sassy you can temper some chocolate and draw on skinny lines like this.
