Funnel Cake




Ingredients

1 egg

1 cup – 2 tbsp.  milk

2 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/3 tsp salt

1 cup plain flour

Strawberry Sauce

Ingredients

300 g strawberries

1 tablespoon of sugar

juice of 1/2 lemon

1 tsp cornflour/starch

pinch of salt

How to make it




I mixed it all together in a measuring jug.  I didn’t have a funnel of the size recommended in the video so I used a piping bag and just snipped the end off to make a 6mm hole. You can use a strong food bag if you don’t have a piping bag. And yeah, just follow the video. It’s really simple and quick. I was amazed at how well they came out.

Strawberry Sauce method

Place 1/3 of the strawberries in a pan with the sugar, corn starch and salt. Cook for a few minutes on low /medium heat until the strawberries soften.  Add the lemon juice and switch off.  Place this mixture into a blender and liquidise to get out any lumps.  Pour this back into the pan and bring back to the heat.  When it boils, turn off the stove and add the remaining strawberries.  Cool to room temperature and store in the refrigerator until required.

Assembly

Place the hot fried funnel cake on a serving plate and dust lightly with icing sugar. Add some of the cooled strawberry sauce on top and finish with a generous serving of whipped cream.  Enjoy!
