Step 1

Take one cup of water, set the other 1/4 cup aside. Mix 1 cup water with full amount of regular sugar, salt, and butter. In a small sauce pan, bring to a boil.

Step 2

Remove from heat and add flour. Mix until a dough ball forms. Set aside for a moment.

Step 3

Heat oil in a frying pan or large pot. You should have enough oil to cover the desired thickness of the funnel cake.

Step 4

While that's heating, add eggs and remain 1/4 cup water to the dough. Mix well. Transfer to a ziploc bag and cut very small corner off.

Step 5

Squeeze dough out into the hot oil, aim for circular patterns and make sure all dough connects. You'll need to do this fast for best results.

Step 6

Cook until the edges are golden brown, flip, and cook the other side until golden brown.

You can add a bit more water if needed if it's difficult to squeeze out of the ziploc bag, you can also add a couple tablespoons of milk for more flavor.
