Funnel Cakes

From Hutto

Prep time: 5 min | Cook time: 2 min | Ready in: 7 min | Yields: Serves 5-6 people depending on size.



  • 2 Cups Flour

  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon

  • 1/2 Tsp Salt

  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder

  • 2 Tbsp Sugar

  • 1 1/2 Cup Milk

  • 2 Eggs

  • 2 Cups Oil, Heat in saucepan

  • 1 Bag Powdered Sugar, For sprinkling over cooked funnel cake



  • Before you make the mixture, place at least 2 cups of oil in a saucepan and heat over medium heat. The oil has to be hot before you place the mixture in but we'll get to that.

  • Mix all ingredients together until smooth in texture. Make sure it is not too thick.

  • You may want to use an actual funnel unless you feel comfortable hand pouring the funnel in a swirl shape.

  • Pour the batter into the hot oil while using a swirling motion. (Just like you've seen them make at the carnival)

  • Fry in the oil until both sides are golden brown and remove using tongs.

  • Place the funnel cake on a paper towel on a plate to drain the excess oil left over. Do this before sprinkling powdered sugar or it will clump.

  • Sift the powdered sugar and then sprinkle over the funnel cake.

  • BONUS: If you aren't partial to powdered sugar, consider using chocolate drizzle (lightly) instead!
