Description

Sweet and fluffy on the inside, crispy and golden on the outside. Just the way you remember them!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2-¼ cups Milk
  • Powdered Sugar, For Dusting
  • Canola Oil, For Frying

Preparation

In a large, deep pan, heat the oil to 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients then whisk in the eggs, vanilla extract, and milk. Add a dash more milk if need to achieve the proper consistency (the batter should resemble thin pancake batter).

Pour 1/2 cup batter through a funnel (while making circular, swirling motions) into the hot oil. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes, flipping halfway through. Drain on a paper towel, coat with powdered sugar, and enjoy!

I’ve actually been wondering lately how these things are made! I’m glad I have a basis for how to make them now instead of having to go out and get them!
Thanks!

loved these! we easily fed 25 people with ‘individual’ size cakes. used the outdoor turkey deep fryer and it was perfect!! The kiddos at the party loved them (so did the adults!)

We loved this recipe. Perfect funnel cakes. Of course, I struggled getting the oil the right temp & pouring the batter. Didn’t matter, they tasted great anyway.

We ate ours with chocolate chips. I’ve also had them before with strawberries.

Awesome and so easy to make! The recipe makes several, I fed 6 “big” people, and 1 squirt at my house, plus sent 2 cakes over to the neighbors house. I bought a stainless funnel with a removable strainer at Rural King that works very well for drizzling the batter. I poured 1/2 c. batter through and held my finger over the end until I had the funnel positioned where I wanted it. These fry very quickly at the recommended temp. so make sure you don’t have the oil too hot. My taste buds are thankful for this recipe; my jeans–not so much!
