Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Sift flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and baking soda into large mixing bowl; set aside. Beat eggs, milk and vanilla in bowl with whisk until blended. Add to flour mixture; mix well.
  • Heat about 3 inches oil to 375°F in large saucepan or deep fryer. Slowly pour about 3 Tbsp. batter into hot oil in a free-form lattice pattern. Cook 30 sec. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Drain funnel cake on paper towels. Repeat with remaining batter, allowing oil to return to 375°F between batches.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Make it Easy

Use a plastic squeeze bottle to pour the batter into the hot oil. Cut the tip wide enough to form a steady stream of batter for shaping the funnel cakes.

Cooking Know-How

Be sure to use a thermometer to check the temperature of the oil. Frying at too low a temperature will cause the funnel cakes to absorb too much oil, while too high a temperature will cause burning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from these were great! these were great!...i made them this morning and again for desert...but i didnt have any eggs for second batch....so i found a site that said you can substitute 1 tbs baking powder, 1 tbs warm water, and 1 tbs oil per egg....i tried this and they turned out HORRIBLE....they were too airy and filled with oil....but when you use real eggs they are AMAZING!!....and omitting the baking soda and using 2 tbs baking powder works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a hit with my family. This was a hit with my family. My daughter said they were better than the ones at the ballpark! I will definately make again but will buy a squeeze bottle to make them with, I had a bit of a mess this time using a plastic bag with a small hole cut in a corner. Easy to make a much cheaper than at fairs and ballparks!

They were really messy making them with a plastic bag...make sure your batter isnt to thin and that your oil is really really hot other wise they will not stick together and you end up with a-billion funnel noodles haha either way they were really good...and I will try again with a squeeze bottle.

One place I went to she didn't like it and there were no fairs or carnivals around. So I was looking online and reviewed this recipe and decided to try it. It was DELICIOUS my whole family enjoyed it.

Would be great with some pie filling on top, too.
