Funnel Cakes


  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • powdered sugar, oil for frying

In a large, deep pan, heat oil to about 350*.
Mix dry ingredients together, then whisk in the eggs, vanilla, and milk. Add a splash more milk, if needed. {the batter should be like thin pancake batter}. 
Pour about 1/2 cup of batter through a funnel (while make circular motions and web patterns) into the hot oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes, flipping half way through, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and coat with powdered sugar.



I use one of these bottles, instead of a funnel. It’s easier and I create less of a mess. :)

I just cut the tip all the way down so that the hole was bigger. Works wonderfully.
