Funnel Cakes recipe

Bring the state fair home with this Homemade Funnel Cakes recipe! Easy and delicious recipe on { lilluna.com } A yummy batter that can be topped with hot fudge sauce, caramel, powdered sugar, whatever you like!

It’s no secret that my family loves food. So much of what we do revolves around it, and there are just so many recipes that have become family favorites over the years. This next recipe is one of those. It’s one we have at least every other month as we gather on Sunday nights to let the cousins play and to have an extended family dinner. We especially crave these Homemade Funnel cakes in the fall when it cools down, but that doesn’t mean we don’t make them all year long – because we do. 😉

We’ve been using this Funnel Cakes recipe for as long as I can remember, and it’s something my sister, Kellyn, is usually making for everyone for our Sunday treat. Half of us like it with powdered sugar while the other half loves it with a Homemade Fudge Sauce (being shared later today). Although we don’t go to the fair often to have these guys, it’s a treat we ALWAYS get when we go to Disneyland each year, and I’m happy to say we can still enjoy that treat at home. We sure do LOVE Funnel Cakes, and if you enjoy them too I suggest trying out this recipe. It really is super simple and does not take long to make. 😉

My mouth is watering just looking at this picture!  With it being fall, you can definitely bet we’ll be making this ASAP (even though we like making it all year long.) As I mentioned we are more of the fudge sauce and powdered sugar type, but you can also top it with caramel or add a variety of berries and whipped cream on top.

Bring the state fair home with this Homemade Funnel Cakes recipe, which is a yummy batter that can be topped with hot fudge sauce, caramel, powdered sugar, whatever you like!
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ cups milk
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • Oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Pour vegetable oil in a frying pan (about 1 inch high) on medium high heat.
  2. Mix ingredients into a smooth batter.
  3. Poor batter into a funnel, blocking the tip of the funnel with your finger. Position funnel over the hot oil and slowly move your finger so batter comes out in a steady stream. Make circular and crisscross motions to form a funnel cake.
  4. Using tongs, flip the funnel cake so each side is browned. Remove to a paper towel to drain.
  5. Enjoy with desired toppings.

Stay tuned later today for the Homemade Fudge Sauce we make to go with it. My hubby eats it straight from the jar when it’s made because it’s just THAT good!!

    YUM! Our family loves funnel cake too, and this is close to the recipe we use 🙂 Tip for those folks who don’t have a funnel… Pour the batter into a heavy duty zip top bag, snip a small portion off the bottom corner of the bag, and gently squeeze the batter into the hot oil in crosshatches and zigzags for each cake. Super simple and easy cleanup to boot!

    Just curious if anyone has any suggestions as to why it doesn’t quite taste like funnel cake at the fairs,etc.
    I followed the recipe exact, but it’s like it’s missing some flavor. Just doesn’t really have the taste I find the events funnel cakes taste like. Want to figure it out. Thanks in advance!!

    These are pretty close to tasting authentic. I found that after adding 1 tsp of granulated sugar and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract, these are dead on! Thanks so much for the recipe!!

    I’m absolutely in love with funnel cakes! I usually don’t eat them until the fair comes to town. I’ve been looking for a simple recipe to follow and this is the one! I must ask, how many servings are in this recipe?

    It was ok, but missing something. Taste more like a Zeppole than funnel cake. I did add Vanilla, but wish I had added sugar. It’s almost there just needs a little something.
