Tami gave me her authentic Pennsylvania Dutch Funnel Cake Family Recipe that has been passed from her mother's side of the family (Pennsylvania Dutch descendants) to her. The batter is poured through a funnel in a circular fashion into hot cooking oil and fried until golden brown. They are often served with powdered sugar, jam, or other toppings. Powdered sugar is the traditional topping, although an old Dutch one is molasses. Cinnamon sugar is popping up at some festivals, but it is not traditional, and I have never heard of any fruit toppings served with funnel cakes. They are usually served with fried dough, etc.
