Funnel cake or funnelcake is a regional specialty food originally associated with the Pennsylvania Dutch region of the United States, popular around the U.S. at ballparks, carnivals, fairs, festivals and seaside resorts. Funnel cakes are made by pouring batter through a funnel into hot oil in a circular pattern and deep frying it until golden-brown. When made at concession stands, a specially-made pitcher with an integral funnel-like spout is used instead of a separate funnel. Funnel cakes are often served with powdered sugar, jam, or other toppings.
