    Giggles's Note:

    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. :)

      I used this as a batter for deep fried oreos. It was a huge hit. I did have to add a tablespoon or two more milk to make it the right consistency. I was going to make a funnel cake with the leftover batter but there wasn't any after we got done with the oreos. :-)

      I was really excited to make these since my Husband had NEVER heard of them. I knew he was missing out, and these were just as I remembered them! We did add a bit more milk to thin the batter a bit but other than that we followed the recipe to a T. They turned out WONDERFUL! And by the third one I actually had them looking good too lol. I didn't use quite as much oil as it called for and I used Canola. Such a yummy treat! Next time we might give some to our son too instead of eating it all while he is sleeping lol.
