Funnel cakes are great fun to make. They taste a little like churros and are an American street food that are usually seen at carnivals or funfairs. You can easily make them at home! It's best if you use a funnel or you could use a piping bag with a very wide icing nozzle.
Really good recipe! We are using this recipe for a scouting event. A great tip to dispense this, is to use a cleaned out ketchup bottle. Use your funnel or a funnel made out of foil and laddle batter into your ketchup bottle. Makes it easier to just squirt it in and the apperance comes out just as nice. - 27 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very easy and tasty recipe!!! Adding the vanilla is a MUST!! Using the "ketchup bottle" was a great idea, makes it much easier to fry!! Thanks!! - 27 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
