These came out great! It took me a little to get the size of the batter stream right but they fried really nicely. I used peanut oil because it has a high smoke point and I flipped them by just dragging a skewer across the pan flipping and stretching them back out. Delish! Read More

Just like the county fair. Added two more TBS of water to help thin it a little. Also added Strawberry sauce on top. SO yummy everyone is already asking me to make them again. Read More

This was the best funnel cake recipe I tried! I did add about 2-4 tbsp more flour in the end though. It was perfect! I would make it again. Read More
