Our State Fair will be here in a couple of weeks and we always get funnel cakes. I have never tried making them but have always wanted to. These turned out great. The batter was easy to mix together. The kids had fun watching me use the funnel to pour out the batter. They fried golden crisp and tasted great. We sprinkled ours with powdered sugar. Thanks for sharing this.

Love it, I cooked funnel cakes in High School for a grade in HomeEc Class, we passed if we dropped the batter in the hot oil and if it didn't smoke. I lost my recipe, but am thankful 2 find this one. Yummmmmyyy.
