Funnel Cake with powdered sugar

Funnel cake or funnelcake is a regional specialty food originally associated with the Pennsylvania Dutch region of the United States. Funnel cakes are quite popular around the United States at ballparks, fairs and festivals. Funnel cakes are made by pouring batter through a funnel into hot oil in a circular pattern and deep frying it until golden-brown. They are often served with powdered sugar, jam, or other toppings.

Funnel cake may be made at home (many recipes exist on the Internet), but it is most commonly known as a popular offering of outdoor food stands at carnivals, fairs, and seaside resorts. When made at concession stands, a specially-made pitcher with an integral funnel-like spout is used instead of a separate funnel.

The Finnish analog of funnel cakes, tippaleipä, is traditionally served at May Day (Vappu) celebrations.
