State Fair Funnel Cake Recipe

We always look forward to the State Fair every September mainly for the amazing fair food! One of our favorite things to get is a State Fair Funnel Cake. Just this past week I decided to see how hard it would be to make one at home and I have to say it turned out to be incredibly easy! Here is the recipe for homemade funnel cakes.

Ingredients: Makes 4 Funnel Cakes

1 Cup Flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1 Cup and 1 tablespoon of milk
2 Tablespoons of Sugar
Powdered Sugar or Whatever topping you like

1. In a Large skillet add about 1 1/2 inches of oil and heat to around 350 degrees. Now in a medium bowl combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.

2. In another bowl combine your milk and eggs, make sure you mix the eggs in well. Next add your sugar to this mixture until it dissolves.

3. Add your wet mixture to the flour mixture and beat well with an electric mixer.

4. When your oil is ready (you can check by adding a small drop of the batter to see if it sizzles) grab a funnel and while holding your finger over the hole add the batter. I didn’t have a funnel so I used a cake decorating bag and filled it up with batter. Put your funnel over the oil and remove your finger and allow the batter to go into the oil. Pour your batter out in a circular motion to get that funnel cake look.

5. Cook the batter for about 1 minute and then flip it over with either tongs or a spatula. Cook the other side for about a minute as well. When it’s done place it on a cooling rack or paper towel to drain the excess grease.

      Thank you! We have to wait until September to get Funnel Cakes at our State Fair and they are pretty expensive. When I found out how easy they are to make at home, well let’s just say I’ve put on a couple more pounds!!! :)

    Howdy excellent website! Does running a blog like this take a lot of
    work? I have very little knowledge of programming however I had been hoping
    to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or tips
    for new blog owners please share. I know this is
    off subject but I simply wanted to ask. Thanks!
