Unitasker Wednesday: Funnel cake kit

Funnel Cake KitWhen I was much younger and would visit my grandmother, she used to make me funnel cakes. She was quite the amazing woman because she managed to make them without Dean Jacob’s Funnel Cake Kit.

It’s unbelievable that she got along without this kit, which includes all that you could ever need to execute the perfect funnel cake. Okay, maybe it’s not so unbelievable.

See, my grandmother was able to use a regular funnel that wasn’t Dean Jacob approved. I’m not sure Dean has a secret mix or the funnel contraption that he employs can pour at an alarmingly efficient rate, but the kit includes a bunch of things you most likely have in your kitchen already. Basically, all you need is a funnel and some metal tongs. The mix is included with the kit, and, sorry to ruin the surprise, funnel cakes are simply deep fried pancake batter.

So, save yourself the money and make your own funnel cakes without the help from Dean Jacob.

** Unitasker Wednesday posts humorously poke fun at the single-use items that seem to find their way into our homes.

    I received one of these as a gift a few years ago. I use the blue plastic pouring part as a watering can for my indoor plants.

    I just go to the fair for funnel cake. Note: funnel cake and the Gravitron do not mix.

    My preferred method is to combine the ingredients in a ziploc bag, squish together (kids do a great job at this), then cut the corner, drizzle into the hot oil, then toss the mess in the trash. It’s so fast and delish with fresh strawberries.

    Funnel cakes? I have to say this is the first time I’ve ever heard of such a thing. For some reason I can’t help but think of funnel web spiders. Is this some crazy American thing like putting marshmallows on vegetables?

    Funnel cakes are batter, poured through a funnel into hot oil and deep fried.

    It’s best when eaten warm and topped with favorites like fresh strawberries, powdered sugar or whatever you your heart desires.

    We call it “Fair Food”…you can feel your arteries harden with every bite.

    LOL! I, too, received one as a gift years ago. The blue funnel / pitcher works wonders rinsing the shampoo out of kids hair in the bath. The rest of the set is long gone…
