    Bev's Note:

    I found this recipe in my mom's recipe box. She loved fixing funnel cakes for her grandsons when we would come to visit. Remembering my mom serving funnel cakes to my boys is a very fond memory.

      I also used whole wheat pastry flour to make these, and that worked fine. I did need to add nearly 2 cups of milk to get the dough to flow easily through my funnel. I don't do much frying, and I've only had funnel cakes a handful of times, so I wasn't sure how much oil to use (or how deep I needed to make it). Also, I wasn't sure if I should hold the funnel in the same spot and just let the batter keep dripping into the same spot, or move it around. I moved it around. My littlest really loved these. The older two said they were pretty good, but not quite the same as they've had at amusement parks. I'm sure it's because I didn't do something right. They were very crispy on the edges, and the got quite dark on the bottom before the top was cooked, so I flipped them over, and I'm certain that is not supposed to be required. I did like them for a change, but personally I'm more of a pancake or waffle person. Perhaps if I made them right???

      Bev, these are wonderful! And so easy to make. I did have to add a little more milk to get it through my funnel, but after the first cake, I had it down. My kids said they taste just like the ones from the fair (and I used freshly ground w.w. pastry flour!) I might try to sneak in some protein powder next time. :) I didn't have a way to check the oil temp, so I put it on high until it started to smoke and then turned it down a bit. Turned out great. Thanks for a nice change for breakfast.
