  3. Add half of the flour mixture into the egg mixture, beating just until incorporated and then beat in the other half of mixture.
  4. Let the funnel cake mixture rest for about 10 minutes. Pour the batter into a liquid measuring cup to make it easier to pour into the funnel. Prepare your desired topping while waiting like slicing strawberries, etc)

  6. Pour a third of the mixture into a funnel. Use your finger to cover the end of the funnel.
  7. Hold the end of the funnel close to the oil and then remove your finger.
  8. Quickly make circles in the oil using a spiraling motion.

  10. Remove funnel cake from the oil and let drain on a paper towel.
  11. Garnish and serve immediately with powdered sugar, strawberries and whip cream.
