Funnel Cakes!

Today I am making funnel cakes. Years ago I made funnel cakes in a cast iron dutch oven over the camp fire for my grandchildren, today I'm making them in a cast iron skillet in my air-conditioned kitchen for my great-grandchildren. The results are the same, Happy Children.

14 - If you don't have a thermometer you can test your oil with a few bits of batter. It should take about 2 minutes per side to cook. These bits won't take quite that long but you will be able to see how fast they are cooking.

15 - Use about 1/2 cup batter in your funnel. Hold your finger over the bottom of the funnel until you get it over the hot oil.

16 - Slowly move the funnel in a circular motion to form the cake. You can overlap some, try to keep it close together. After a little practice this becomes quite easy.
