So I’m up in the middle of the night last night, doing what I don’t even remember.
When suddenly, the hanger hits (With a hard G, not like hanger airplane hanger).
For those of you who may not know, “hanger” is the noun form of “hangry”, the short definition of which is “feed me something now before I turn into a much blonder version of the Hulk.”
I’ve had THIS RECIPE hanging around for awhile, and wanted to try it out.
It’s super easy, and true to form, fried bisquick batter tastes just like state fair funnel cake.
Like I needed to know how to fry something else, lol.
Vegetable oil, for frying
2 cups Original Bisquick mix
1 cup milk
Powdered sugar, for topping
Pour oil about one inch deep into a large saucepan or stockpot. Heat over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 350 to 360 degrees F.
Meanwhile, combine Bisquick, milk and eggs in a large bowl; stir until well mixed. Pour batter into squeeze dispenser bottles.
When oil is fully heated, carefully squeeze batter in a circular motion, close to the oil, until a mini funnel cake forms (don’t make more than 2 cakes at a time). Fry 30 seconds on each side until golden brown, then transfer with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain.
Repeat with remaining batter, making sure oil temperature stays within 350 to 360 degrees F.
Sprinkle warm funnel cakes with powdered sugar.
Needless to say, the Hangry Hulk did not make an appearance. The DIY funnel cakes were very filling. 🙂
