Cardamon Funnel Cakes
This recipe was brought back to Germany from Iowa by Christine Teresa Severing

(C = cup;  T = tablespoon;  tsp. = teaspoon)

Preheat oil in a heavy saucepan or electric deep fryer. (I'd propose the deep fryer!)

Sift together
             C flour
             1 T sugar
             1/2 tsp. baking powder
             1/2 tsp. ground cardamon
             1/8 tsp. salt
Blend together in a separate container:
             3/4 C milk
             1 egg
Pour into flour mixture and stir until smooth.
If batter is too heavy, add additional milk.
Batter should pour in a heavy stream.
Test oil by dropping a teaspoon of batter into oil - batter
should begin to fry if oil is hot enough.

Pour about 1/3 C of batter from a glass measuring cup
into hot oil using a circular motion.

Fry 1 1/2 min. or until lightly browned.
Carefully turn funnel cake with tongs to brown 2nd side -
fry 1 1/2 min. again.

Remove cake from oil with tongs and place on several
thicknesses of paper towels.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar using a sifter.
Eat while hot!
