Making these pumpkin funnel cakes was a lot of fun and eating them was even more. You could just pretend you were at some county fair. And because these have pumpkin in them they are probably healthy too, right? The only trick to them is to get the batter thin enough to flow easily through the funnel, but not so fast that you end up with a big blob. Funneling a cake was not as difficult as I imagined. I went in a circle and then across to pick up edges that were straying. They all turn out different but it didn't seem to matter. I used an electric frying pan set at 375 degrees so I didn't have to worry about the temperature of the oil. They can't be made in advance and should be eaten soon an frying for the best eating.
