Funnel Cakes without a deep fryer


Funnel Cake

It’s a crisp Fall day, and I have a carnival going on in my kitchen.  Ok it smells like it.  I don’t deep fry anything, but I had a little bit of a funnel cake craving.  AllRecipes to the rescue.

This funnel cake was super easy to make – I cheated though.  I don’t have a funnel, so I cut down the top of one of my squirt bottles to make a slightly bigger hole, and away I went.

I cooked these in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat with some peanut oil.  Peanut oil has a high smoke point, and a neutral flavor.  Then I just flipped them using a skewer…they are bendy while they’re in the oil, so you can drag the skewer across the pan, then lay them back in on the other side and pull them back apart with the skewer.

Drain onto a wire rack, sprinkle with powdered sugar, and devour these crunchy delicious memories of carnivals and state fairs.
