I went to a vendor event recently and they had funnel cakes… I LOVE FUNNEL CAKES, so of course, I had to get one but then after seeing how much they cost I remembered I had a recipe in my old recipe box so I can make them at home.
My older kids loved funnel cakes too so we made them on a fairly regular basis before moving to Florida. I know they aren’t the healthiest treat but they will be OK for every now and then. They can be a little tricky to make as you really need to swirl the batter to get the right texture but once you get the hang of it you’ll find that they are fun to make.
I know that traditionally they are sprinkled with 10x sugar but you can also try them with fruit and whipped cream or a Cinnamon Sugar mixture.
- 1 c. sugar
- 3 eggs
- 4 c. flour
- 4 t. baking powder
- 2 c. milk
Mix everything together.
Heat a deep fryer or deep pot with oil.
Get very hot!
Slowly pour the mixture in VERY HOT oil.
Flip over when golden brown and take out when the other side is golden.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
