Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 5 mins

Cook: 15 mins

  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • Honey, for drizzling
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  1. Fill a deep, medium skillet with enough oil to reach a depth of 2 inches; heat over medium-high heat until it registers 375 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer, about 8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl. In a small bowl, beat the milk and egg, then beat into the dry ingredients until smooth. Transfer to a glass measuring cup.
  3. Fill a baster with batter. Drizzle into the hot oil in a zigzag pattern, then refill the baster and drizzle more batter on top; repeat until one-quarter of the batter has been used. Fry the funnel cake, turning once, until golden, about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spatula, transfer to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet. Working in 3 batches, repeat with the remaining batter, allowing the oil to return to 375 degrees between batches.
  4. Drizzle the honey over the funnel cakes, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve immediately.
