Funnel cake Recipe, Fair Food so easy to makeWe went to the fair last week, my husband bought a funnel cake to show Johann our boy from France how good they are.  We enjoyed it but I told the kids next time we need to make them at home for a fraction of the price.  Here is the recipe I posted a few years ago on how to make Funnel Cakes. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

****************************

So I am 30+ years old and never had a Funnel cake, yes I have seen them at the fair, and heard everyone rant and rave about how good they are……but I have never been willing to pay the inflated $5 fee they charge for carnival food.

Matt’s parents have been making them at home since the 70’s, back in Rhode Island.  They wanted to make them for the Grandkids this weekend.  It was rather fun….cost pennies to make and the kids and I LOVED it.

Funnel Cakes

  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 TBS Sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups Sifted Flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 TBS baking powder

Beat egg, add milk, sift salt, sugar, flour and Baking powder together. Add eggs and milk. Beat until smooth. Pour batter into funnel. Funnel into oil that is 350 degrees (recipe makes 3 large funnel cakes)

You want to overlap the batter to create a “cake” that will form a solid shape that you can flip, to brown the other side.

Once both sides are golden brown, drain on paper towels  and top with powdered sugar.

Thanks Granny and Papa these were great!

You can also use the same batter and dip these rosettes in it and then place them in the oil. With a little shake the batter comes off the rosette and you can finish frying them.

I love these and have made them at our church's Harvest carnival. When you see how easy it is, it is hard to buy them out at fairs.:) Thanks for reminding me why I like these. I need to go make one soon:)

I just made this recipe and I'm eating it between typing. SUPER YUMMY! I also dont have a funnel and had to use plastic bag. Guess I need to find a squeeze bottle.

I've got to tell you- I rarely comment but I just had to this time! I saw this recipe and immediately my younger daughter and I went into the kitchen to make this! It is oh so yummy!!!!! Thank you for making our evening (and hubby is going to be so jealous! lol). I was so excited to make this that it wasn't until the oil was heated and all the ingredients were mixed and ready to go that I remembered that we don't have a funnel! lol We ended up putting the mixture into a ziplock baggie and clipped the end corner off. It worked but I am SO getting a squeezie bottle tomorrow at the dollar store so that we can do this again!

We host a harvest party during the Fall, we try to have caramel apples and funnel cakes. If you put the batter into a squeeze bottle, you can make the funnel cakes much easier without all the mess. You can generally find them at the dollar store with a twist off cap.

Looks yummy! It's a good thing you don't live out in the San Francisco Bay Area. Funnel Cake is at least $7 (extra for toppings). Thank you for sharing your recipe. I hope to try it this summer.

I love funnel cakes and have tried to make them before. I agree they cost way to much to buy when you are out someplace. Thank you for the recipe I am going to try these.
