Summer is in full swing and so are the County Fairs and Carnivals. I know we all have that beloved favorite treat that we just have to get while visiting the fair! Well, my family’s favorite “go to” fair food is the Funnel Cake and these Funnel Cake Bites taste just as good if not better than what you find at your local fair. These are made in the comfort of your own kitchen and can be enjoyed all year round!
Jenn had really good luck using a small cookie scoop to measure out and drop in the dough! Thanks Jenn!
Working with any kind of hot oil can be dangerous. Make sure you take proper precautions when making these. The oil does not need to be on a high heat at all. Just enough to make it warm and keep it warm.
To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla
- 2 cups of flour
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
