EASY Funnel Cakes

So I have to attribute these beautiful funnel cakes to my mom.

She was going to babysit my kids because me and my hubby had to go  run some errands. I walked into her home to find these lovelys on the counter.  She so kindly let me photograph them and share the recipe she used with you! She found the recipe from All Recipes and it is here in our family to stay! Everyone loved it!

They are so soft and delicious!  We like to top ours with honey butter and powdered sugar!

I then whipped up another batch to feed the rest of the masses, and I can tell you, this recipe is FANTASTIC!  It is not only delicious but SUPER quick to make!

    Who would have thought fried dough topped with powdered sugar would be SO incredible!? I LOVE funnel cakes--the best part of the fair, for sure. I'm glad these are easy 'cause I'll definitely be making some after dinner.

    I've tried making funnel cake before, and never really liked it. I don't know if it was the recipe or what, but I stopped trying to make it. Then today my son came home and was sad because at breakfast at school they were having funnel cake, but they ran out before he got there and he had to have cereal. I decided tonight would be a good night to try funnel cake again. We found your recipe on pinterest (I decided to use your recipe since I had made other great things from your blog) and it was fantastic. I loved it! The only thing we did differently was to pour the batter into an old, cleaned out syrup bottle and used that to dispense the batter. Thanks for your awesome post. We have tired many of your recipes before and loved them. Keep up the awesome work!
