  • In a mixing bowl whisk together the self rising flour, sugar, eggs , milk and vanilla until there are no lumps
  • If you are using a squeeze bottle cut the end off to make the hole a little larger.(If you don't have a bottle see my notes)
  • Using a funnel and pour the batter into the bottle
  • If using the egg mold place it in the hot oil .
  • Drizzle with a constant flow the batter into the ring until it fills up .
  • Once the funnel cake cooks together carefully remove the ring using an oven mitt.
  • With metal tongs to carefully flip the funnel cake .
  • Cook until golden brown on each side
  • Removal from oil and place on paper towels to soak up the excess oil
  • Transfer to a plate and dust with powdered sugar
