More About This Recipe
If there is one thing my husband loves more than Christmas and his birthday, it’s the Minnesota State Fair.
I wish I was joking! Every single year, he looks forward to the deep-fried food aplenty on a stick, the animal barns, the exhausting heat and the crowds. Me? I do love me a good day at the fair and a deep-fried candy bar on a stick but once a year – any more than that and I’m a little “fair”ed out.
Of course, this doesn’t stop either of us from craving classic fair foods at other times of the year (or when we’re neck-deep in snow and we’re begging for that exhausting heat back). So what are we to do? Make DIY State Fair Funnel Cakes at home, of course!
I had no idea how easy it was to make funnel cakes at home – and ones that taste just as good, if not better, than the ones I can get at the fair. All you need is some Bisquick and hot oil and you’re basically in business.
Pro tip: I like to cut the spouts of the bottles as low as possible so the opening is bigger and therefore less likely to get clogged up by a rogue lump of batter.
