Fo Shizzle Fridays | Great Recipe

I love funnel cake...I even love funnel cake when one of my favorite magazines says it's a good  approved ahem diet snack.  371 calories isn't bad right?  Give it a try.

1 1/4 cups whole milk                                                      2 cups all purpose flour, shifted
2 eggs                                                                               4 tsp baking powder
1 cup confectioner's sugar, plus more for dusting           Vegetable oil
2 tsp salt                                                                           2 cups blueberries ( I sub'd with other berries)
2 tsp vanilla extract                                                          1 cup raspberries

What to Do:

Recipe adapted from SELF Magazine 9/13
In a bowl, whisk milk, eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla until smooth about 2 minutes.  In another bowl, combine flour and baking powder.  Slowly whisk 1/4 of milk mixture into flour mixture until smooth; stir in remaining milk mixture.  Cover batter and plastic wrap; let sit for 20 minutes.  In a medium pot, heat 2 inches of oil over medium-high heat until it sizzles when a drop of water is added.  Divide batter between 2 plastic freezer bags; snip a corner of one bag; slowly swirl 1/8 of the batter into the
oil.  Fry until golden, flipping once (I used tongs), 30 seconds per side.  Remove funnel cake and place on a paper towel-lined plate.  Repeat with remaining batter.  Top cakes with berries; dust with sugar.  Serves 8

Okay so a lil heavy on the carbs but trust me it's worth it and much less than those elephant ears you get at the amusement park.  Enjoy!
