Funnel Cakes

Who can resist the sweet fried goodness of a Funnel Cake? I certainly can’t. This recipe is easy and quite the treat for a summer evening! Hope you enjoy it too!

Funnel Cakes


2 eggs 1 cup milk 1 cup water 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 cup sugar 3 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 cups oil for deep-fat frying powdered sugar


Heat oil to 350°F in a large dutch oven.

In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, water, and vanilla until well combined. In another bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet and whisk until smooth.

There are multiple ways of pouring the batter, but I prefer to use a funnel. Cover the bottom of a funnel spout with your finger; ladle 1/2 cup batter into the funnel. Holding the funnel several inches above the oil, release your finger, moving the funnel in a spiral motion until all the batter has drained. Fry 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown, using tongs to flip. Drain on paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar; serve immediately.

Repeat with remaining batter.
