Red Velvet Funnel Cakes

May 28, 2012
Happy Memorial Day!  Thank you to all the men and women who have served our country, both past and present.
Because today is such a special holiday, I’m sure many of you have the day off from work and/or school.  I hope you’ll either be relaxing, barbequing, baking and cooking, or really doing whatever you enjoy the most on this beautiful day.  I know Steve and I will be staying home and just relaxing.  We’ve had a crazy weekend and we need to just take some time off.  But don’t get me wrong, my type of relaxing is not just sitting and doing nothing.  I’ll definitely be in the kitchen creating some type of fun dessert.  And I think I’ll start with these Red Velvet Funnel Cakes!
I created this recipe earlier this year.  My mind was wrapped up creating unique Red Velvet Desserts.  I made several different desserts, such as Red Velvet Oreos and Red Velvet Baked Doughnuts.  I loved all of the desserts I created, but I was by far the most proud of these Funnel Cakes. 
This is my first Funnel Cake recipe that I created and they turned out better than I expected.  Even though they are fried, they are light and airy and not overly oily at all.  They are perfectly sweet with the special Red Velvet flavor.
Funnel Cakes are a great dessert to make this Memorial Day holiday.  They are such a fun and creative dessert to make for your family and friends.  And they couldn’t be easier!  You create a simple batter made out of ingredients that you probably already have on hand.  Heat up some oil on the stove and fry the funnel cake right there.  Dust with powdered sugar and in just minutes you’ve got a great summer dessert!
A special thank you to my brother-in-law, Johnny, who is an active MARSOC Marine.  We are so proud to have a brother like you.
Enjoy your Memorial Day!  And these Red Velvet Funnel Cakes!

    Does the red food coloring affect the grease at all? Could you still fry regular funnel cakes in the same oil, or would it tint them to be red also?
