Yield: Yields 4 medium funnel cakes
At Lb. Brewing Company/Gella’s Diner in Hayes, Kansas, my eye was drawn to a root beer funnel cake on their menu. How fun! When I got home, I began to experiment with the recipe and found that the best flavor combination is bottled root beer in the batter and root beer extract in the glaze. This is not a recipe to serve a crowd at home–despite the funnel cake’s popularity at county fairs–as you can only fry one at a time. You can find root beer extract at cake decorating shops.

In a large, deep skillet, pour in enough vegetable oil to reach 1 inch. Heat to 375°F over medium-high heat.
These were so fluffy and moist. Not crispy like at the fair, though. I didn't make the glaze, I just covered them in powdered sugar. The root beer gave them a nice flavor. I will definitely make these again.
