FUNnel Cake Date

October 12, 2012

Best. date. night. ever.
Something not many people know about me is that my favorite food ever is funnel cake. I like everything about it. I like the shapes. I like how each funnel cake is different. I LOOVEEE the smell. I also love how you can put ANYTHING on it and it will taste sooo good. I talk about funnel cake all the time to Hunter, but I rarely find a place that sells it. Soooo...
We decided to make our own.
It's so simple and so cheap and such a fun date! Funnel cake and a Redbox-I can't think of anything right now better than that combination. The recipe calls for a funnel (duh), but we improvised (like us poor people usually do). We put the batter in a water bottle! Genius.


Directions:

  1. Beat eggs and sugar together and then add the milk slowly--beat. Add the dry ingredients and beat until smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour batter into a funnel and at the same time, use your finger to plug the hole. (or put it in water bottle like we did) In a large cast iron pot, add 2 inches of oil to the bottom.
  3. When the oil becomes hot, move your hand over the pot and slowly release your finger so the batter can start cooking.
  4. Move the funnel around to make designs.
  5. Brown on both sides--then immediately remove and drain extremely well.
  6. Top with brown sugar, or honey, or cinnamon sugar, or powdered sugar as a topping.
  7. BE CAREFUL AND DO NOT GET BURNED
Our house still smells like a carnival:)
Don't mind me looking like a freak in this picture...I was just THAT happy! Happy Weekend!
love, lacy

  3. So you know how there are all those frozen custard stands back home like Fritz's where you walk up, order, and sit and eat outside. Well, nothing like that exists here in Boise. So my hubby and I want to bring frozen custard out here and open a stand called "Franny's Froze 'n Fair" and sell frozen custard and fair food. Funnel cakes, corn dogs, cotton candy...all those wonderful things you can't seem to get without spending an arm and a leg just to get into the fair anyway and then another $6 for the food itself and then have to wait another year for the fair to come back so you can buy it again. Great idea, right?! Someday...
