Bring the county fair home.
These are exactly what you get at any fair or carnival.
I've made these for our block party and was a huge hit!!

* I know that these are called FUNNEL cakes but using a funnel can be awkward and messy. I've found that using a plastic squeeze bottle with a wide spout works great.(I used an empty margarita mix bottle that had a pour spout)

How to Make Funnel Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix Egg and Milk together.
    Sift dry ingredients together until well mixed.
    Gradually add dry mix to egg/milk mixture, beat until smooth.
  • 2Preheat oil in skillet to 375 degrees F
    I used an electric non-stick skillet but I had to increase the temperature (425+) to get correct browning without sogginess. Just adjust this as you see fit.
  • 3When oil is hot, drizzle slowly in a swirling motion crossing layers till it's about the size of salad plate.
    Fry to a deep golden brown then turn over and brown the other side.
    Remove and place on several paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
  • 4While your funnel cake is still hot add powdered sugar to suit your taste.
    Serve while still warm.
    You can add additional toppings such as :
    Flavored syrups
    Fresh or Canned Fruits
    Whipped Cream
    Etc.
