I am a fan of fair food. I'm not gunna lie. Deep fried anything is good. Actually, it's better than good... it is phenomenal. But, unfortunately, that yummy food is expensive!!! Since my hubby and I are on a budget I decided that I would pass up the $6.00 funnel cakes and make my own with ingredients I already had around the house! So not only was this free ( kind of!) but it was also a lot of fun to do!
The first step is heating up your oil. I used vegetable oil heated up in a frying pan...and I didn't measure it but it was probably about a 1/2 inch of oil in the pan.
2 Cups flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
You'll also need powdered sugar to sprinkle on top... but we are not there yet!
Once your batter is made and your oil is hot, load up your batter... now, I know that these delectable treats are called funnel cakes because the batter is put into the oil through a funnel... and I tried! ATTENTION: the funnel method failed! I ended up using my cupcake icing device.... I also believe a pastry bag would work well or a plastic storage bag with the corner cut out of it.... but, whatever tool you decide to use, now comes the fun part!!!
Drizzle, Pour, go CrAzY! Put that batter in the pan!
Now, the hard part.... let it cook! After the bottom side is cooked to your liking, go ahead and flip it over!
Let the other side cook!
Now, you can take your funnel cake out of the oil (careful! It is really REALLY hot!) and put it on top a plate covered with paper towels (to sop of the excess oil). Then remove the paper towel, and sprinkle on your powdered sugar!
Ok... Now you can eat it!
