Now this was just FUN!! Fantastic recipe...tasted like I was at the fair. Kids went NUTS over them and were begging for more! Very easy to make. Next time I think I will go all the way and make lemon shake ups too!! Only problem I had was my funnel opening was too small for the batter...but we compromised and used something else. They still turned out great!! (I will be buying a bigger funnel though!!) Thanks for the great recipe :)
This funnel cake was so delicious. Put it in my cookbook. My family loved this. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
This is a great recipe, its small, quick and tastes great.
I must admit, I wasn't impressed. I got nostalgic the other night, and decided that I wanted to make funnel cakes like the ones that I used to get at the fair as a kid. I looked up this recipe. The batter was way too thick, and wouldn't pass through my funnel, so I had to pour it from a cup, as thinly as possible. It did not work very well, so I tried thinning the batter with a little extra milk. That just seemed to make it thicker. The 'cakes' turned out very thick and doughy. I think I will try again with a different recipe, because this one was very problematic. Sorry!
The recipe was easy to follow, batter was smooth, the funnel cake had a nice soft crunch when you bite into it and then a bit soft in the middle. The only complaint I have is that the funnel needed more tast. Maybe if I added brown sugar instead of white sugar and vanilla extract it would then give the funnel cake more tast.
AaaahYUMMMMMM! Great recipe, thanks! I used splenda instead of sugar and grinded more splenda to just make powdered sugar. Added just a dash of cinnamon and vanilla. Used the fry daddy and it worked perfect.
OMG!!! This was better than the fair if you ask me because, it was cheaper and you can make it any way you want. I didn't think it would come out this good. I will be making this at the next family function. I know it will be a hit!
I made this for Hanukkah, with great results. Poured batter into 2 small sandwich bags and before frying, cut a corner (not over the pan, because you don't want the piece of plastic falling into the hot oil). It was a little messy, but I have no funnel or spare ketchup bottle. Sandwich bags are dispensable and convenient. That said, kids loved it - it served way more than 6. There were about 8 of us, including about 4 children with hearty appetites. I was inspired to make this after having Burger King's funnel cake - sadly though, BK's funnel cake was sweeter. It was fun to make, but better left as something done annually.
I think this review should come from the source, so I am writing this after my wifey found this recipe. OMG!!! I don't even like funnel cake but this was soooo good! I had been trying to talking my wife into going to the gas station to get us drinks (at 1 am) and she refused, saying she was making these. She gave me the first one and I said "If you make me another I'll go to gas station right NOW!" Thank you Traci and Jeff and whoever the carni was who let this secret outa the bag! :)
Greatly disappointed. They were rather blase and flavorless. Even added cinnamon and vanilla to give it some flavor and it still didn't work. I was hoping for more.
