Who doesn’t love funnel cakes! This is such a fun recipe to make at home. Children and adults will love them. Pile on the powdered sugar or you can serve them for breakfast with your favorite syrup. They go great with bacon or sausage. You can double this recipe if you like and funnel cakes are so easy to make.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, (optional)
About 1 1/4 cups cooking oil (I used a 10 inch skillet. You need enough oil to make about 1/2 inch deep)
Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt until well blended. Add the egg, milk and vanilla extract. Mix well with spoon. Heat oil in a skillet to about 360 degrees or until it starts to bubble and boil. Pour 1/2 cup funnel cake mixture through a funnel while holding it over the hot oil and moving the funnel around in a spiral direction. Cook on each side about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels. This makes about 4 funnel cakes. Always be careful when working with hot oil. You can make them as big or small as you like and Enjoy!
Note: I pour 1/2 cup batter into a small pitcher and use the pitcher to pour into the funnel like in the photo below.
