Apple Cider Funnel Cakes

apple cider funnel cakes

Well, now I’ve done it.

I made funnel cakes.

There’s NO going back.

No longer do I need to wait for the fair,
or a trip to an amusement park.

This could get dangerous

and… seeing how it is fall
I added cider
and my favorite apple pie spice
and cinnamon mixed with the powdered sugar

Not sure if I should be proud of this fact, but I am getting GOOD at frying.

Apple Cider Funnel Cakes:
~recipe adapted from The Pioneer Woman

2 cups of flour
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup apple cider
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp apple pie spice
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

combine the dry ingredients
add in the eggs
mix until well blended
{you may need to add just a bit more liquid}
should look like pancake batter

heat about 2 inches of oil in a deep skillet
when the oil is  hot, add the batter to your funnel or a squeeze bottle
hold the opening VERY close to the oil or your batter won’t stay together
{make smal circular motions}
they cook extremely fast
using tongs flip over to cook the other side
not much longer than one minute
drain on paper towels

dust with powdered sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon

    Oh, my goodness. I wonder if I can pretend I didn’t see this. Funnel cake has to be the best treat ever. What a great twist adding an apple pie flavor. If I can figure out how to make this gluten-free, it will be a Thanksgiving hit! Pinning.

    These would be dangerous in my house. My husband loves funnel cakes, and with the addition of cider and apple pie spice…yum! I just may have to make some of these.

    Those are my all time favorite fair treats…I don’t think this is a good thing for me to see:-) Now I want to pull out the fryer and make some and my jeans are skeered!!!
