FUNNEL CAKE!

Recommended Posts

My Cthulhu Wars pledge came in, but my most important acquisition of the day was FUNNEL CAKE!

 I usually do either powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar on mine. Although pizza sauce and parmesan ain't bad either.

 

  There's a place a few towns over that sells fried dough all summer long. It's this little old-fashioned general store that also sells home-made jelly, old-fashioned rock candy, candy sticks 12 for 2 dollars and bags of old-fashioned root beer barrels and licorice drops. <drool>

 

I'm sorely tempted to grab my car keys.

 

(But I won't. Because that's also the same little shopping village that has Silk Road Imports, the Army/Navy store and the place that sells fresh-made chocolate-covered frozen bananas... And although the duck pond in the middle of it is a great place to take pretty pictures, that wouldn't be very pretty for my wallet.)

So is that the Franklin General Store at the shops at old Mystic Village?  'Cause Awesome Wife wants to know.

 

Going to the local carnival for fried dough later.

At the New York State Fair, it comes with cinnamon sugar and powdered sugar. Hawai'i State Fair? Powdered suger only.

 

I think I'm going to make some at home...

I had a girlfriend in high school whose family was in shock that I had, until that time, never had funnel cake. They talked and talked and talked about it all that spring, proclaiming it the food of the gods. Needless to say, when summer finally arrived and the local fair came along, and I finally was able to sink my teeth into its deep-fried, powdery goodness, I found myself rather disappointed.

 

I mean, it's fun. But it's nothing to write home about.

I saw funnel cake for sale a couple of times on my travels and wondered what it was (especially as it looked nothing like cake).

 Yes and no - the place that sells the fried dough is now called "Boardwalk" but it's in the same place it's always been, next to Irish Eyes and The Toy Soldier, and is basically the same store. The Franklin General Store is over closer to the Army/Navy Store these days...

 

 

 And I LIED!!!!

 

Fired dough with cinnamon sugar... ::D:

 

Fresh made-to-order crispy fries... ::D:

 

Freshly roasted cinnamon-covered almonds... ::D:

 

Cherry Coke and a bag of Deep River Snacks "Sweet Maui Onion" kettle-cooked chips (Awesome local brand)... ::D:

And then I was just too stuffed to go for dessert... :down:

 

 

So I bought one and brought it home for tomorrow... :bday: :bday: :bday: :bday:

I've had funnel cake.  When it's hot and fresh and they use a good batter, it's heaven.  But so often at fairs and amusement parks I find it is just god awful crap.  I like mine with powdered sugar and cinnamon and sugar.

I haven't had funnel cake in aaaages. I don't go to enough fairs anymore, I guess.

 

I think it's pretty good but I used to always get sick if I ate a whole thing of it. Not sure why, since I have no problem eating pounds of chocolate at a time.

Different types of fat maybe?  I know I don't eat KFC any more due to the few times I've had it doing a though system cleanse for the next 3 days.....
