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
Oil

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.

6.) Now your ready for the fun part..Toppings! We just used Powdered sugar but you can use anything you like, ice cream, whipped cream, fruit,etc. This is a super easy recipe and very delicious and fun to make. Why wait for the fair when you can make your own funnel cake at home for free!

  2. Yummy!! My family would love this. :)

    • 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!!! :)

  3. Yum! One of our favorites was the Funnel Cakes at DisneyWorld, and we haven’t found a recipe for them yet! We’re excited to try this one! Thanks for linking up with us on “Strut Your Stuff Saturday!” We hope to see you next week! -The Sisters
