Funnel Cakes

Since we are already experiencing beautiful summer weather here in the South, I've been trying out some warm weather recipes.  Funnel cakes always remind me of a summertime fair and are a great treat on hot summer nights.  

Here's the recipe...

(printable version)


1 egg
¾ cup milk
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Oil for frying
Powdered Sugar

Heat oil in fryer to 350 degrees.  Combine egg and milk in a mixing bowl.  In a small bowl mix together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Add dry ingredients to egg mixture.  Pour ¼ cup batter into a funnel and swirl in a circular motion into the hot oil.  Fry for 1 minute and flip.  Continue to fry until golden brown.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar while hot.


  1. I had my first funnel cake at an auction yesterday! Oh Yes! Very yummy!

  2. They look delicious! (And I always have all the ingredients on hand). I made these when Jason and Connor were here for a visit and they both loved them. :)

  3. makes me want to go to the Fair! :0)

    i would like to invite you to come join in on a WEEKLY RECIPE LINK PARTY on my blog:

    I hope to see your recipes soon.
