These are tasty little flat fried cakes that taste best served warm and dusted with icing sugar. They are made from a batter similar to a pancake mix, which is poured through a funnel (or very wide nozzle) to create circular ribbons that are deep-fried to hold them together. Delicious!
Snip the corner off a disposable piping bag to use in place of a funnel; fill with a small amount of batter and squeeze gently.
Loved this recipe, particularly as in the UK it's a super rare treat to have funnel cakes (and I *love* them). The recipe was nice and easy to use and as we'd already bought a funnel cake pourer very easy get that traditional look too. The only tweak I made was cinammon and sugar (I'm a big sweet tooth) As you can see from my photo's, we themed ours up for a USA Classic Movie night we were having at home! - 17 Feb 2017
Made this recipe for my kids last night and they were a hit! I did have to add more milk as it was a bit thick and I also added more sugar to make the batter a bit sweeter. With that they turned out just like the funnel cakes you get at the fairs/carnivals, etc! They were delicious and very easy to make. - 24 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I Think that is was great all it really needs like everyone say more milk and more sugar. - 01 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
