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.
Good when you're feeling nostalgic...though I don't remember them being so crispy at Six Flags. Since making these I tried "Funnel Cakes I" from this site, and they were much more authentic.
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!!
well darling let me tell YOU.... i hate everything but these funnel cakes are to die for!!!! pAAAlease!!!! all that saturated fat and sugar...they're sure to put a ton o' love in your spare tire!!! bring the carnival home to you and immediately call a cardiovascular specialist you're gonna die for these cakes!!!
These came out a whole lot better than they did the first time I made them. I added a little nutmeg, vanilla extract, an extra tsp. of sugar, and more milk than the recipe called for. A zip lock bag was used to swirl the batter into the hot oil. I also scaled the recipe down to four servings and topped each with confectioner's sugar and cherry pie filling. Tasted great!
Great recipe... It's important to follow the directions and start with only half the flour, adding the rest a little at a time until you get the right consistency. It will probably end up too thick if you use the full amount of flour in the recipe.
I don't have a funnel, so put the batter in a plastic bag and cut off the corner. I also used some of the batter to make fried Oreos (just dip the Oreos in the batter and fry). Mmmmm.
We all LOVE funnel cake and, like most people, only get them at the shore, amusement parks, etc. - until now! My big sister used to make these for me when I was young, but she couldn't remember how so I once again looked to allrecipes for help. I was not disappointed! I took the advice of others and only used 2 2/3 c. flour. Ultimately, I used all but appr. 1/4 c. to achieve the right consistency. I also increased the sugar to appr. 1/2 c. (it just wasn't sweet enough for us) and added 1 t. vanilla. Excellent! Saved the left over batter for the next time we're having a craving!
I absolutely loved this! It tasted just like the funnel cakes at the amusement parks. I only gave it a 4 because I had to alter the recipe by adding less flour (about 1/2 cup) and more milk (a little more than a 1/3 cup). I also added a little more sugar and some vanilla extract. It was delicious! A measuring cup works great if you don't have a funnel.
