Sweet Treats

6 Jan


Both making and eating funnel cakes is fun. There’s something about the brain like structures of these crispy treats that is so enchanting. Today I am going to share with you how to make a simple maple syrup infused version of the traditional funnel cake. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

What you will need:
2 cups of milk
2 cups self raising flour, sifted
1 egg
4 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Powdered sugar for serving

What to do:
In a large bowl beat together your milk, egg and maple syrup. Gradually fold in your sifted flour and sugar. Add in the melted butter and whisk until a smooth batter has formed. Using a piping bag with a small round nozzle, pipe your batter into some hot oil moving your hand in a circular motion to create round nests. Allow your batter to fry for about 2 minutes or until crisp. Once cooked remove your cakes from the oil and place them on paper towel to absorb any excess oil. To serve dust lightly with the powdered sugar. Recipe makes about 4 funnel cakes.

    Ah, I just saw these on a beautiful mess then read my blog feed thing and saw that you had also made them. Which is great because you don’t use corn starch and I have no idea where I would get corn starch from. Do you know what is corn starch can be substituted with?

      Hey Esther!
      I saw Emma’s version too! I thought the squeezy bottle was genius. The piping bag I used had my fingers getting splattered with hot oil!
      Here in Australia we call Corn Starch Corn Flour so maybe you could find that?
      Otherwise I know in some recipes you can substitute corn flour for Arrowroot, Rice or Tapioca Flour. These may work in Emma’s Recipe :)
      Hope I have helped!
