    Funnel cakes are made by pouring batter through a funnel into hot oil in a circular pattern and deep frying it until golden-brown.

    Often folk have them with a fruit syrup on them too.....and ice cream.

    1 cup water
    3/4 stick butter (6 tablespoons)
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 cup flour
    1 cup eggs, about 4 large eggs and 2 whites
    Vegetable oil, for frying
    Powdered sugar, for topping

    Boil water, butter, sugar, and salt together in a saucepan. Add flour and work it in until it is all incorporated and dough forms a ball. Transfer mixture to the bowl of a standing mixer and let cool for 3 to 4 minutes. With mixer lowest speed, add eggs, 1 at a time, making sure the first egg is completely incorporated before continuing. Once all eggs have been added and mixture is smooth, put dough in a piping bag fitted with a number 12 tip. Heat about 1 1/2 inches of oil in a heavy pan. Pipe dough into oil, making a free-form lattice pattern; cook until browned, flipping once. Remove cake from oil, drain on paper towels, and top with powdered sugar. Continue until all of the batter is used.

    well that's one way to describe it did it taste nice though :D









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
