    MelinOhio's Note:

    I love funnel cakes plain with powdered sugar. I like them topped with fresh strawberries too! I got this from Southern Living magazine years and years ago.

      I just made this recipe and to me it didn't compare to the fair at all. It tasted more like fried pancakes than the funnel cakes of the fair. It is a great go to recipe for a quick dessert though, especially for homes with children.

      Made these for breakfast. They were very easy! Only got three cakes out of these. The first one was really thick, (probably user error). I didn't have a funnel so I poured the batter into a zip lock bag and snipped off a corner. Worked well
