I ate an Elephant Ear
We had a great weekend! This week they had Ribfest in Kalamazoo. It is a pretty big thing around here and so we decided to go with a few of our friends. To give you an idea of how crazy this place can be, the headlining act that night was Mickey Dollens from the Monkees.
I had some pork ribs, pulled pork sandwich, and an Elephant Ear! That's right! I ate an elephant ear....no it isn't what you think! Everyone at work was telling me about this and how I had to get it. So I went to the stand and paid five bucks. The lady hands me this giant flat piece of donut bread on two plates!! It wasn't quite like the one shown here (with pudding)...mine had powedered sugar and cinnamon on it. It was awesome!
I guess in the west we like funnel cake (which is still my favorite out of the two) and in the east they like Elephant Ears. It is the same kinda dough, just cooked differently. This is the same funnel cake batter, but somehow they get it in the fryer all flat. Then they let it fry up in the grease, just like funnel cakes, and they put all kinds of garbly goop on top! Yummmm.
