State Fair Funnel Cakes
This State Fair staple of deep-fried batter is spongy and crisp and covered with pillowy drifts of light-as-air powdered sugar...can it get any better than this.

Right on tastes just like the funnel cakes you buy at fairs!

Batter was a bit thick so I cut it to 2 cups. I used to work for the carnival making these so it came out near perfect. Added bananas and caramel and it was like being back in the circuit!

Very good, used 1/2 cup sugar and a splash of vanilla, yum!

Loved this. I modified it with Splenda and a small amount of sugar so my husband could eat it for a RARE treat (since he always has to skip the sugary ones at the fairs) and it turned out beautifully! We added sugar free chocolate and caramel sauces and slices of good!

With a few adjustments this recipe is absolutely perfect! I kept everything the same except for the sugar and flower, I added 1/2 C of sugar and 2 1/4 C of flower as well as 1/2 tsp of Vanilla extract(imitation) My funnel cake turned out sweet and chewy(but not undercooked)

Loved it everyone says batter was too thick....seemed ok to me but then again I had never had a funnel cake like ever. It does make far too many tho other than that loved it! My sister in law says she never has to but them again
