Funnel cake with Lemon Icing

1 egg
2/3 cup milk
1 1/3 cup sifted flour
2 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder

Beat the egg and add the milk. Sift the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda together. Add the egg and milk mixture to this and beat until smooth. Holding your finger over the bottom of the funnel, pour some batter into the funnel. Drop batter into a pan of hot oil (375) swirling it into circles, from the center out. Make each cake six inches in diameter. Fry until golden brown. Drain on brown paper and serve. Note Funnel should have 5/8-inch opening. Serve topped with powdered sugar, ice-cream or anything else that you can think of.
