Funnel Cake at Home? Easier Than You Think.

by Doc Murphy

Thanks to Granny's Favorites Cookbooks, here's how to make one of my favorite Fair Foods whenever you want.  The best part is, it's simple and DELICIOUS!

Funnel Cake
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup milk
- 1 tsp baking powder
1 ¼ cup all purpose flour...or coconut flour to make gluten free
2 Tbsp sugar
¼ tsp salt
Oil for frying, enough to cover the bottom of the skillet
Powdered sugar for topping

  • Mix egg and milk. Sift dry ingredients and gradually add to milk mixture, beat until smooth.
  • Preheat oil in fry pan to 375 degrees F.  (I use an electric skillet, easier to control)
  • Pour batter into hot oil with a funnel with a ½ “ or ¾” hole. Let batter drizzle into hot oil. Spiraling to create a circle.
  • Cook about 1 minute, flip over, cooking both sides. Remove and drain on paper towels.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with fruit preserves while still warm.
  • Pretend you're at the Fair and stuff your face.
