What would the fair be without these delicious deep-fried pastries? To make these timeless treats, slowly swirl batter into oil, brown it to perfection and lightly dust with confectioners’ sugar.
Is it weird that I didn’t have my first taste of county fair funnel cakes until I was an adult?! To be honest, I sort of had an idea what it was and what to expect, but I really didn’t know … if that makes sense? Was it like a waffle? Was it like a cake? I was pretty certain that I was going to love funnel cakes, though, because who doesn’t love fried dough topped with copious amounts of sugar?! 😍
My first taste of funnel cakes came at a small Midwest county fair when I was about 20 years old. I will never forget that first bite …. talk about food love! I’ve been hooked ever since! I swore as a mother, I was going to make sure my kiddos tried Funnel Cakes before they turned twenty – and they have! Many times!
Although my family loves funnel cakes, we only have them a few times a year. They are so easy to make and I always have all of the ingredients on hand to make them. The best part? I don’t have to wait for the county fair to indulge a little!
