Funnel Cake! – July 2009 - Sara

I like Funnel Cake. I like elephant ears too; I can never decide which I like better. After a cursory internet search I found that funnel cake is easier hence, it is my fried challenge entry and now my favorite. It’s almost pancake batter. This makes me happy too because I can lobby for it to become a breakfast staple. So, yay!

Here it goes: (I found the recipe here:

1 egg
2/3 cup milk
2 tbsp. sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder

Mix them all up and heat some oil to med-high.

You can use a funnel to drizzle the batter into the oil (hence the name). I put the batter in a Ziplock baggie and cut the corner off because I’m lazy.

Drizzle your batter, wait a little bit (less than a minute) and turn it over, repeat if necessary until golden brown.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Now you can sit back and gain 20 lbs because this is WAAAAY too easy and really, really good! Bon Apetit!


  1. Thank god I hate dealing with oil... 'cause I'd have to make those DAILY if I didn't. Looks goooood.

  2. Looks cool - can you make shapes with this method? I too am glad that I don't frequently fry things because this looks tasty and too easy to pass up.

  3. Oh yeah, you can totally make shapes. I actually made my initials... because I'm a child and really like my initials...
