Funnel Cakes

Lisa Bynum

Funnel cakes are an instant crowd pleaser. We love snacking on them at the local county fair during the summer, but can you imagine my kids’ surprise when I whipped up a batch on Christmas morning last year?! I knew I wanted to try this recipe from Cooking Bride, but when I saw how easy it was, I knew it could be trouble! Whip up a batch to sweeten your littles’ weekend or add a special touch to a holiday brunch.

An added bonus? Just because I have a gluten allergy doesn’t mean I cannot indulge in a childhood favorite with my family. We tried this recipe with an All-in-one gluten free flour and it didn’t need any adjustments! It was just as good, if not better than the version I remember from the fair. If your batter starts to thicken up too much, just add a little milk or water to loosen it up. You want to make it easy to get those fun, swirly designs.  ~Val

You don’t have to wait until the fair rolls into your town to enjoy this deep-fried snack. Funnel cakes are so easy to make at home. Once the hot cakes come out of the fryer, coat them high with powdered sugar and keep plenty of napkins handy.
