While food historians remind us that recipes often predate their current popular names, they generally agree the idea of funnel cakes as we know them today first came into being in Northern Europe sometime before the term funnel cake became the common name for the sweetened fried dough confection . While modern dictionaries and food references generally place the term 'funnel cakes' in the 20th century, culinary evidence confirms the recipe is much older. In this country the sweetened fried dough confection became a popular item around the holidays and were a special favorite at street fairs and fundraisers. All in pleasing original condition, this funnel cake maker is suitable for use and will fit well as a country kitchen accessory or in a Civil War era cooking or sanitary fair grouping.
