Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill a 8 to 10 inch fry pan with oil (about 1/3 to 1/2 of the pan full of oil) and heat to frying temperature.
  2. Combine the ingredients in order given.
  3. Get a regular cooking funnel. Put your finger over the funnel spout; fill the funnel with the batter.
  4. Start letting the batter funnel out in a criss-cross until all batter in funnel is gone. Batter will come together and cook until golden brown in about 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side. remove and top with what you want (when cooking make sure you make the batter cover the whole bottom of the pan--just keep criss-crossing until all holes are filled in).
  5. Repeat with remaining batter. Makes 8 to 10 large cakes.
  6. Toppers for the cakes after cooking: Dust with powdered sugar or powdered sugar mixed with cinnamon. The carnival also uses canned pie filling such as apple or any flavor you want.
