Funnel Cakes


Funnel cakes are made by pouring batter through a funnel into deep hot fat.


  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • oil for deep frying
  • sifted confectioners' sugar


Beat eggs with milk. Sift together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder; add to eggs and milk. Beat until very smooth. Heat oil in deep fryer to 370°. Holding the funnel with one finger keeping the opening closed, fill with batter.
Open the end of the funnel and allow batter to run out in a stream into deep hot fat. Move funnel from center, swirling outward in a circular pattern. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer fried funnel cakes to paper towels to drain. Shake sifted confectioners' sugar over drained funnel cakes.
Makes 20 to 30 funnel cakes, depending on size.
