Christmas in Indiana!
Three of my lovely sisters~ Mara, Naomi, & Keturah~ prepared funnel cakes for breakfast. For many years we have been trying to find the "perfect" recipe, either homemade or a store-bought mix, without success. Finally, we found The One! This is hot, powdered sugar fried Perfection:
Just the right amount of soft/chewy/crunchy, and never oily-even rivaling Silver Dollar City's famous funnel cakes!
And then, to balance it all out, I decided to make fruit salad:
The fresh pineapple was fabulous. So that was our Christmas breakfast-simple and sweet. Always something special, but never the same from year to year!
And the funnel cake recipe? Where to find it, you may ask? That's a funny answer. This past summer, while in Branson, Tom and I went along with my family, the Nails, to visit nearby College of the Ozarks. They had a gift shop of items made by students at the college. We loaded up on jellies, apple butter, and pancake mixes. Then, on a whim, Mom decided to try their funnel cake mix just in case. And it was superb!
Here is a list of products available through College of the Ozarks.
