READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Giggles

I love to get funnel cakes at the fair, but a fair is not always in town. This recipe is very good and perfect for a quick snack for the kids.

Great recipe. Put it together in less than 15 minutes and it turned out great. I added some extra milk to make it runnier to flow through the funnel and added a pinch of cinnamon. Tastes just like at the carnival, just with less carny. :)
