Funnel cakes make scrumptious desserts. Here are a few recipes for you to try out at home and enjoy with your folks.
Ever wondered what makes American carnivals, state fairs and ballparks all the more enjoyable? A requisite fixture to these events would indubitably be funnel cakes, an American delicacy that links back to the Pennsylvania Dutch of the 19th century. The standard formula for this dessert involves pouring the batter into boiling hot oil through a funnel and later deep frying it until a golden-brown mouth watering cake is formed. It is the Indian counterpart of ‘jalebis’ (which are made of rice flour) and ‘churro’, a breakfast snack popular amongst the Spanish speaking countries. Infact, it is so simple to make at home that one wouldn’t have to wait for the next carnival or fair. On a lighter note, cake lovers would be delighted to learn that a 6” diameter funnel cake has fewer than 300 calories! Apart from being utterly yummy and honouring harvest festivals, funnel cakes serve as fantastic fundraisers for numerous events and festivals, with a minimal investment in equipment. Here are three hallowed funnel cake recipes that will transport you to heaven!
