If  you are like me, then that  scrupulous cake like batter that is poured through a funnel into hot fat or oil, deep-fried until crisp, and served with sprinkled with sugar, IS the carnival!  It originated from the Pennsylvania Dutch Amish.  As with most of the Amish recipes they are always a winner!  We usually try to improve on them but always come back to the original because it is the Best!  This is the recipe that was passed down to me.

Dutch Amish Funnel Cakefunnel cake

* 2 cups flour
* 1 tblsp. baking powder
* 1 tsp. salt
* 2 cups milk
* 2 eggs, separated
* 2 tblsp. melted butter

Sift together in a bowl the flour, salt and baking powder. Beat the egg yolks and add the milk. Pour milk mixture slowly into the dry ingredients and beat to a smooth batter. Add the melted butter then fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Bake on hot griddle. Makes about 12 cakes.  (This can also be substituted by dripping into hot oil)
