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.

I made this as written, and thought it was flavorless. The milk does need another 1/4 c or so to get the right consistency. I would double the salt, sugar, and add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. I halved the recipe and ended up with 4 medium sized cakes.

I made these for myself, my husband & 3 year old as a treat. They were so good & easy to make!! I made mine in a deep skillet. I modified & used a cup of milk instead of 2/3 cup, 4 tablespoons of sugar instead of 2 & they turned out perfectly :) Love it & I will definitely make these again.

Great recipe, used 3/4 cups of milk instead of 2/3s. Worked Great, not going to spend the money at the carnival anymore for Funnel Cake.
