Total Time:
20 min
Prep:
10 min
Cook:
10 min

Yield:
6 to 8 servings, depending upon size of cakes
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) melted butter
  • Powdered sugar, for topping
Directions

Combine milk, egg, vanilla in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar and gradually add to wet ingredients. Beat with a mixer until a smooth batter forms. Fold in melted butter. Pour batter into a funnel or squeeze bottle while using your index finger to stop the flow of the batter. Bring the funnel over the hot oil and release your finger to start a stream of batter while moving the funnel in a circular motion to create spiral-like shapes. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown and slightly puffed. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

I made them and they turned out wonderful! I too added a little more sugar, but not too much more. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The first time I tried it, it was ok it wasn't sweet. So this second batch I added like a 1/2-1 cup of sugar. This I would recommend also mix it up and add as much or less sugar since its a real simply recipe add or don't add play around with it. I give it three stars because its real simple. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I give it one star because I can't give a 0... If you check most of recipes for funnel cake there is no BUTTER involved. Please whomever sees this comment, trust me the recipe CAN do WITHOUT the butter. There is a reason as to why they made fun of her because of the use of butter. It added a weird taste to the funnel cakes and came out soft and barely crispy. DO NOT ADD THE BUTTER....Funnel cake recipe is basically like a pancake mix recipe, really. NO BUTTER. IF YOU WANT TRY AND DO ONE BATTER WITH AND WITHOUT THE BUTTER AND YOU'LL SEE WHAT I MEAN. SERIOUSLY!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I also used butter! item not reviewed by moderator and published
