Whole Wheat Funnel Cake

Get ready for this twist on a classic state fair treat! Funnel Cakes!

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 tsps. salt, optional
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsps. honey
  • 1 egg
  • 7/8 cup warm milk
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Honey or maple syrup

Sift flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder together. Add honey, egg and milk. Beat until smooth.

Heat about 2 inches of oil in a large cast-iron skillet.(To test the temperature, drop a small amount of batter in hot oil; if it floats to the top and bubbles, it's ready.) Cover the opening of a 5/8-inch funnel with a finger, and pour a small amount of batter into the funnel. Over hot oil, release batter in swirling motions, to form cakes about 6 inches in diameter. Fry until golden. Drain on paper toweling. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar. Serve with honey or maple syrup.
