Holidays are for spoiling ourselves – eating to our heart’s content. Calories do not count on the holidays. Holidays are all about treating our taste buds to the scrumptious wonders of the destination country.

If you are heading to Canada this year then keep in mind that Canada offers a whole new sweetly delicious heritage to discover.

Luscious chocolates, candies and cakes are found everywhere but what about a local sweet that will be a feast to our senses??? Yes, in Canada be nice to your senses, go local and try FUNNEL CAKE.

Funnel cakes are deep fried dough topped with a dusting of powdered sugar, a generous swirl of vanilla ice-cream and several scoops of ruby red strawberry sauce. Funnel cakes are also served with maple syrup, honey, chocolate, fresh fruits, cinnamon and apple food toppings.

Gorge on these lip smacking funnel cakes in carnivals, fairs, amusement parks, street-side food trucks when visiting Canada. Funnel cakes are every sweet lovers delight. One bite and I had literally licked my plate clean.

Traditional Funnel Cake Recipe:

Funnel cakes are made by pouring batter into hot cooking oil in a circular pattern through a funnel and deep fried until golden brown. Once fried, funnel cakes are sprinkled with confectioner’s sugar and desired topping and served warm.

Wonderland’s (an amusement park in Canada) funnel cakes are especially generous and tasty. Friendly servers cheerily add more ice-cream and sauce to satiate all our sweet craving.

Funnel cakes are loaded with calories but remember,
