Funnel Cake Tips:
There are a few things a beginner at funnel cake making should know. There's a fine line between a delicious, golden, crispy treat and a gloppy mess. That line lies in the technique used to pour and fry the batter.
Frying at too low a temperature will cause the funnel cakes to absorb too much oil, while too high a temperature will cause burning. If you don't have a thermometer, a way to check to make sure the oil is at the proper temperature is to heat up the oil, and then take a a piece of white bread and drop it into the oil. You'll know the oil is at a perfect temp when the bread browns slightly and crisp up within 20 seconds of dropping it into the hot oil. If it takes longer, the temp is too low, if it browns faster, the temp is too hot.
Do not crowd cakes in the hot oil. We suggest cooking one at a time.
If you are using a regular funnel, be sure the tube opening is at least 5/8″. When using a regular funnel, place your fingertip over the tip of the tube to control the flow. Practice funneling the dough in your bowl.
If you find it too hard using the funnel, try putting the batter in a squeeze bottle (the kind you can get at the Dollar Store to put ketchup and mustard in). Cut the tip wide enough to form a steady stream of batter for shaping the funnel cakes.
The speed with which you pour the batter will also have an effect on the finished product, so take your time to create the classic favorite. You'll be a pro in no time!
Directions for Deep Fried Twinkies (or other sweets like mini candy bars, orea cookies, etc.)
Freeze Twinkies(sweets) for several hours or overnight.
Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F.
Prepare the batter as directed on package.
Remove the Twinkies from the freezer, dust lightly with white flour, and dip into the batter. Turn to completely coat the Twinkies with the batter.
Carefully lower the Twinkies into the hot oil (you can do this in batches if needed) with tongs or place in a fryer basket.
Cook until the Twinkies are golden brown, turning them as needed to brown on all sides.
Remove with tongs and place on paper towels to drain the fat. Let sit for 2-3 minutes before eating. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
