For the Funnel Cakes:

  • 4 cups vegetable or canola oil for frying
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For Garnish:

  • Powdered sugar
  • Vanilla Ice Cream or another flavor like strawberry
  • Mascerated Strawberries 2 cups sliced strawberries tossed with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Whipped Cream
  • confectioner's sugar


For the Funnel Cakes:

  • Heat oil in a pot to about 375 degrees.
  • Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl until combined.
  • Next whisk in wet ingredients: milk, eggs and vanilla extract until the batter is nice and smooth.
  • Add batter to a funnel, squeeze bottle or even a cake decorating piping bag with a round tip.
  • Once oil is nice and hot, swirl batter in a spirally shape (have fun with this part) into the oil and fry. Turn over once the first side is nice and golden brown.
  • Once both sides are golden brown, remove from oil and place on paper towels to drain. These babies fry fast!

For Garnish:

  • Immediately cover with powdered sugar, ice cream, strawberries and whipped cream and serve.
