At just about every fair and festival (and ballparks and such) you'll find funnelcake stand. If you can't wait until Founder's Day comes around again, make funnel cake at home!
In a large bowl, mix milk and eggs. Beat thoroughly. Add vanilla, baking powder and salt, and mix. Beat in enough flour to make a batter the consistency of pancake batter.
Add enough oil to a deep skillet to measure 1 inch deep. Heat until oil is quite hot, about 375 degrees. Pour batter through a funnel into the pan beginning at outside rim edge and working it around gradually to center (cross over the batter here and there to make a spider-web-ish pattern). Fry to a light brown color (like fried dough). Remove with tongs to paper towels for draining.
Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar, or serve with maple syrup or cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!
