From the looks of this recipe, it would need another teaspoon or two of baking powder in order to resemble anything similar to pancakes, but would benefit from direct deep frying in order to end up more like a funnel cake. In fact, it would appear that this IS a modified funnel cake recipe http://www.food.com/recipe/mommas-fair-funnel-cake-916?ref=amp So making these into pancakes may not yield the result you're looking for.Reply
With this batter, I made your recipe #254947 254947 using lemon-lime Kool-Aid for the flavoring. DH said it was like pancakes with sprite. We felt it would go better with traditional pancake flavors like strawberry or blueberry Kool Aid. We both agreed while we enjoyed the unique flavor of these pancakes, the texture was way off and very doughy/dense. Overall a nice recipe, and loads of fun to make. Thanks for sharing the recipe.1Reply
