How To Make Funnel Cakes



Anyone can learn how to make funnel cakes!

Once you learn how to make these, you'll wonder why you haven't been making this funnel cake recipe all the time! Kids absolutely love these and so do the big kids.



Here's what you are going to need:


3 eggs
2 cups of milk
1/2 cup of sugar
3 cups of self-rising flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla

vegetable oil for frying

powdered sugar for dusting
cinnamon sugar for dusting (1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon)

Here's what you need to do:

In a large bowl, cream together the eggs, sugar, milk and vanilla. Add the flour a little at a time mixing well between each addition. The batter will need to be thin enough to run through a funnel. You may need a little more or a little less flour to get the right consistency.

In an 8 inch skillet, heat vegetable oil to 375 degrees F.

Hold your finger over the bottom of a funnel and pour 1/2 cup of batter into the funnel. Hold the funnel close to the oil and remove your finger. Move the funnel in a circular motion so that the batter is spread around in the pan. Carefully turn the cake over with metal tongs or a metal spatula and brown the other side. This will take less than a minute.

Drain on paper towels and dust with powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar or top with your favorite pie filling!

**When I make funnel cakes, instead of using a funnel, I fill and empty ketchup bottle with batter and squirt it into the oil. I just eye-ball it to get the right amount! Much easier than using a funnel.
