Carnival-Style Gluten Free Funnel Cakes

I don’t know about you, but funnel cakes bring back so many sweet memories(pun intended). Summer nights, carnival rides, and special occasions spent with special people.

Traditionally, funnel cakes are big gluten-bombs. That’s why I’m so excited to share this gluten free funnel cake recipe from my friend Jennifer at Sugar Spice and Glitter!

These gluten-free funnel cakes are just like the original – crispy on the outside and soft and fluffyon the inside. Sprinkle them with powderedsugar, or top it with a scoop of ice cream – whatever sounds yummiest to you!
