Funnel Cakes

The State Fair isn’t the only time you can have a funnel cake.

Make your own at home, your family will love you. 😉


funnel 2


1 1/2 cups  Flour

1 tsp Baking Powder

1/4 tsp Salt

1/4 cup Powdered Sugar

1 1/3 cup Milk

1/4 tsp Lemon Zest

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Egg

Sift the dry ingredients into a large container that you can easily pour from  a plastic pitcher. In a separate bowl, beat the egg with the rest of the wet ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into the dry and stir until a thick batter forms, (If too thick, add a little more milk).  Pour the batter directly from the pitcher into the pan.

In a large pan, pour in the oil until it is about 1/2 inch deep, and heat to 350F.  Pour batter into the pan and cook until funnel ring is solid (30 seconds-1min).  Flip and cook the other side for 30 seconds to a minute or until a nice golden brown. These cook very quickly so be careful not to burn.

Once golden brown, remove from pan and place on paper towels to drain. Immediately top with powdered sugar. 

Serve warm.
