Funnel Cakes


  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 egg


Beat egg and milk. Add other ingredients. Let stand at least 20 minutes (can stand up to 1 hour). Pour oil 1 inch deep in a skillet and heat (hot oil is very important). Pour mixture through a funnel into the hot grease; the mixture does not have to touch. Brown on one side, then remove to a plate. Pour powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar on top.

  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. soda
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 3/4 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2/3 cup milk


Sift flour, salt, soda, sugar and baking powder together in separate bowl. Mix egg and milk together. Add to dry ingredients. Beat until smooth. If batter is too thick, add a bit more milk. Hold finger over bottom of a funner, pour in some batter. Remove finger and let batter drop in a spiral motion into pan filled with 1 inch of hot oil (375 degrees F). Fry until golden brown, turning once. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve hot.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 packages (5 1/2 oz each) Martha White Flapstacks
  • Confectioners sugar


Heat about 1 inch of oil in a skillet to 375 degrees. Beat eggs well in a large mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients. Stir until batter is smooth. Holding opening of a funnel covered with your finger, pour 1/4 cup batter into a wide mouth funnel. When ready to fry release finger and run batter in hot oil using a slow, wide circular motion and maintaining as steady a stream as possible.

Fry, turning once, until golden brown, 1-1 1/2 minutes on each side. Drain on a paper towel. Repeat until all batter is used. Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar. Best served warm. Makes 10 large.


TIPS: If batter is too runny, add more pancake mix being careful not to get it too thick. It should run out of the funnel freely. Make sure grease is at least 375 degrees F so they will cook fast and not absorb so much grease. Let cool a little while before dusting with powdered sugar since the hot funnel cake can dissolve the sugar. A dash of cinnamon in mixture makes them spicier or you can drizzle with syrup. The funnel you use should have a 3/8 inch opening.

A great treat for the family!

<p>Sift together your dry ingredients. Add milk, and egg. Together and add to dry ingredients. Pour oil into a skillet and heat until hot. I use a measuring cup and add about 1/4 cup batter to oil. Moving as I pour into a circle or zig zag motion.

<p>Fry about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove from oil and place on paper towels to drain grease. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with fruit if desired.
