Summertime Funnel Cakes

3 large eggs
2-1/4 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
4 cups flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Oil for frying
Powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat the oil to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and lemon. Mix well. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Fold the flour mixture into the egg mixture. Stir until smooth.
   Hold your finger over the funnel opening, fill with 3/4 cup of the filling. Place the funnel over the oil and remove your finger. (Be careful not to
burn yourself.) Crisscross the filling into the hot oil. Fry until golden on both sides. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar (a sifter makes this easier.) Repeat the process until all of the batter is used.
