Directions

Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the milk, Strawberry Syrup and eggs in a medium bowl. Make a well in the flour mixture, and then pour in the egg mixture and whisk until well combined. Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Heat 1 inch of oil in a medium straight-sided skillet to 375 degrees F.

Spoon 3/4 cup of the batter into a funnel with a 1/2-inch tip, keeping the opening at the bottom closed with your finger. Place the funnel over the skillet, release your finger and pour the batter through the funnel, moving to create a round, lacy funnel cake no bigger than 7 inches in diameter (or as big or small as you want!), creating thick, even strands so the cake cooks evenly. Fry the cake until beginning to brown and crisp, 2 minutes, and then flip and cook until done, another 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack set over a baking sheet and keep in the warm oven as you finish making the funnel cakes in batches.

To serve, place 1 funnel cake on each plate and dust with powdered sugar. Top each with 2 scoops of ice cream, some strawberries and bananas and drizzle with chocolate sauce and leftover Strawberry Syrup. Finish with the sweetened whipped cream, pecans, if using, and a maraschino cherry.

Combine the strawberries, sugar, lemon zest and 1/2 cup water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until thick and syrupy, about 10 minutes. Puree in a food processor, strain and let cool before using. Yield: 1 cup.

    Holy moly this was so fun and so delish! My husband was so impressed. I only did powdered sugar and drizzled chocolate because I didn't have all the other ingredients but it was still so fantastic. I will for sure be making this again with all the banana split ingredients.
