Funnel Cakes Recipe
As a child growing up I used to look forward to the fair coming every year so I could have a funnel cake. Back then they only came one way and that was a deep fried funnel cake sprinkled with powdered sugar. As well as I remember the first ones I remember buying were only 50 cents and they were so delicious.
It was only many years later that I got to have fudge funnel cakes , carmel funnel cakes , and banana split funnel cakes. And now you can get all different flavors of funnel cakes made many different ways.
And now you can make your own delicious funnel cakes by following the below recipe.
1. 2 & 2/3 Cups All Purpose Plain Flour.
