Funnel Cakes

Course: Snack


  • 1 ⅔ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract optional
  • 4 Tablespoons powdered sugar for dusting


  • In a large liquid measuring cup or batter bowl with a spout, whisk together milk, egg, and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients, except powdered sugar.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and whisk until completely smooth. Set aside.
  • In a medium, deep-sided pan or pot, heat 1" of oil to 375°F over medium-high heat. When you put the end of a wooden spoon in the pot and bubbles form around the spoon, it's ready. Reduce heat to medium.
  • Drizzle batter from cup in a thin line, swirling around the pan and overlapping as desired. Cook for 2 minutes or until light golden brown, then flip and cook another 2 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Dust with 2 tablespoons powdered sugar and serve. Repeat one more time with the remaining batter.
