Apple Cider Funnel Cake Sundaes - My Sweet Sanity

Apple Cider Funnel Cake Sundaes

Apple Cider Funnel Cake Sundae

With fall in full swing the last of the years festivals, carnivals and such are happening now. I don’t know about the rest of the country but here in the Midwest funnel cakes are always a part of these things. There is just something about sharing a funnel cake with friends or family. The fried dough coated with powdered sugar is such a simple yet yummy treat. Who can resist? Some places even make them into sundaes. Topping the already heavenly treats with ice cream and toppings.

I decided that I wanted to make something different from the standard funnel cake though. I wanted it to be fully fall in flavoring. I decided to go make it an apple cider funnel cake seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg to give that full fall flavor. Then instead of just topping it simple powdered sugar, I opted to top it with that and cinnamon sugar. Now these were good just like that but I really wanted to take it to a whole other place and I did with an apple pie sundae on top. Oh goodness, but that was some really good stuff!

    I always wondered how they were made, for some reason I thought you needed a special tool like a waffle maker. Might just have to try this! Yummy looking recipe.

    Those look amazing. One of my goals is to start cooking/baking more from scratch. Maybe this will be one of my first attempts to meet this goal.

    Funnel cakes are pretty popular here too (Southern Ontario). All of the farming communities have fairs/agricultural shows.

    Oh my goodness – that is just AWESOME looking!

    I’ve never tried making funnel cakes at home – but it doesn’t sound like it is too difficult. Maybe we will give it a try this year. Fried foods are a Hanukkah tradition… maybe we will make funnel cakes instead of donuts this year. 😀
