Servings: 6
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes


¾ cup|200 ml whole milk
2 large eggs
1 cup|45 grams all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
¾ teaspoons baking powder 
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
confectioners' sugar, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the milk and eggs. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, taking care not to over-mix.
  2. Transfer the batter to a squeeze bottle and set aside.
  3. Heat 3 inches oil in a 2-quart saucepan until a deep-fry thermometer reaches 350°F. Squeeze about ¼ cup of batter into the oil, making zig zag shapes and designs (like a funnel cake looks, duh). Cook, flipping once, until lightly golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and keep warm. Serve dusted with confectioners' sugar.
