When we went to the fair last week, we decided against the $7 funnel cakes. $7! Sheesh. Instead, I thought we could make our own at home and make them even more fun! What's more fun than learning while snacking? These funnel cakes are crunchy goodness on the outside and fluffy heaven on the inside. This is more of a recipe than a DIY, but you know how it is. Here's what you'll need:

1 Egg
2 C Milk
1 Tsp Vanilla
2 C Flour
1 Tbs Baking soda
1 Tbs Salt
1 Tbs Sugar
1/2 Stick of Butter
Powdered Sugar (to sprinkle)

First mix the wet ingredients in a mixer, then slowly add the dry ingredients till you have a nice smooth batter. Next, melt your butter and fold that into the batter. It wouldn't be worth eating if it didn't have butter, right? While your butter is melting, now is a good time to heat up your oil. I used coconut oil (yum!) but you can use whatever kind you like. Once your butter is folded in, pour your batter into a squeeze bottle. I know these are called funnel cakes, but ours our squeeze bottle cakes. Once your oil is nice and hot, start squeezing out your letters! Let them cook for a minute on each side (until golden brown) and set them out to dry. Once their all done, sprinkle on some powdered sugar and enjoy! It's a lot of fun and really doesn't take very long at all. Elliott loved recognizing and then promptly eating the letters. These would be really fun to have at a circus or ABC themed birthday party too!
