Granny’s Favorites Cookbooks



  1. On my first and only visit to the US 10 yrs ago, one memory that hasn`t faded away is the funnel cakes that I tasted there. The first time was at a carnival in Bloomington, IL and the second time was at the Amish village in IL. Must say that the one I tasted at the Amish village was the BEST.

    • Funnel cakes are my favorite. They are the reason I go to carnivals and fairs. I have been wanting to find a recipe for a long time. It is funny because we went to the county fair yesterday and got a funnel cake, and I was again reminded of how much I really wanted a recipe, and then I found this recipe on Facebook. Guess it was my lucky day.

      • I loved the funnel cake too. That is why even I tried making it once after I got back to India. But sadly it did not taste as good as the one I had at the Amish.
        It just struck me now that whenever it is that would I open my pastry shop, I will definitely serve funnel cakes on atleast a few occasions.
        Was nice connecting with you.
