After a trip to Wet N Wild today; and talking with the kids about how expensive the "food" was there ($6 for a funnel cake with one topping); we came home and made this GF version of Funnel Cakes (due to my son's Celiac Disease). I made a half recipe and used the America's Test Kitchen GF Flour Blend. I did add additional milk to the batter as it was too thick as written. They turned out delicious! Glad to have this GF recipe in my repertoire!
I made this tonight and I have mixed feelings about it. I followed the directions and the batter was very thick, so I added more milk and another egg. When I put dripped it into the oil it all separated - it didn't stick together like a traditional funnel cake. But it was still delicious with powdered sugar on top!
wow amazing!! didn't realize how much i was really missing this fair specialty until i could have it again!!! keeping this on file as a summer favorite!!!!!
I was so skeptical about this recipe, but it is amazingly delicious! My teenage son, who doesn't have any food sensitivities, absolutely loved it, and he usually turns his nose up to anything gluten free. Yummy!
I made this according to the recipe. The funnel cakes were good but very thick and lacking in flavor. The next time, I revised and in addition to original recipe, I added 1/4 c half and half, 1 egg, 1 t. vanilla and used Pamela's GF pancake and baking mix. If you use Pamela's omit the salt, xanthan gum and baking powder. The second batch tasted very much like the funnel cakes you get at fairs!
Most delicious gluten free dessert I have ever made! Plus, all the gluten eaters in the house also loved it! It made me feel like the state fair had set up camp in my house.
WOW. Just made this recipe. I used my own standard GF flour blend. Used some half n half in place of the milk. (ran out of milk) but followed the recipe exact. OMGoodness...Everyone loved them! So tasty! Will definately make again and again.
