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.



You can easily serve these with any fruit topping you want.  Berries work best to continue the theme or they are also great on their own with powdered sugar topping.
