Funnel cake recipe

My kids wanted funnel cake, they will pour chocolate on top. I am not crazy for fried food. When I eat, I top it with blue berries and some maple syrup.

3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup milk
Canola oil, for frying
1 cup confectioners' sugar

 for topping

Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl whisk the egg and granulated sugar. Whisk the egg into the milk mixture. Gently stir the milk mixture into the flour mixture. The batter should be a little thicker than pancake batter. Add more milk if needed.

Heat 2 inches of canola oil in a pot with deep sides over medium heat until it gets to 375. Just heat it until a drop of water sizzles when dropped into the oil. pour 1/2 cup batter for about 30 seconds until the batter floats and the underside is golden. Use a spoon and flip to cook and hold the funnel over the oil and moving the funnel around in circles to create a web pattern. Cook for another 30 seconds or more, or until golden. Place the funnel cake on a paper towel and let cool for a minute. Top it with powdered sugar and serve.
