  1. Mix salt, baking powder, and half the flour in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cream eggs, sugar, and milk in a large bowl. Add flour mixture and beat until smooth. Continue to add remaining flour, but use only enough to achieve desired consistency. Batter will be thin enough to run through a funnel.
  3. Heat the oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) in an 8-inch skillet.
  4. Put your finger over the bottom opening of the funnel, and fill the funnel with a generous 1/2 cup of the batter. Hold the funnel close to the surface of the oil, and release the batter into the oil while making a circular motion. Fry until golden brown. Use tongs and wide spatula to turn the cake over carefully. Fry the second side one minute. Drain on paper towels, and sprinkle with sifted confectioners' sugar.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Great recipe... It's important to follow the directions and start with only half the flour, adding the rest a little at a time until you get the right consistency. It will probably end up too ...

We all LOVE funnel cake and, like most people, only get them at the shore, amusement parks, etc. - until now! My big sister used to make these for me when I was young, but she couldn't remember ...

I absolutely loved this! It tasted just like the funnel cakes at the amusement parks. I only gave it a 4 because I had to alter the recipe by adding less flour (about 1/2 cup) and more milk (a...

Good when you're feeling nostalgic...though I don't remember them being so crispy at Six Flags. Since making these I tried "Funnel Cakes I" from this site, and they were much more authentic.

Turned out great, we didn't have a funnel so cut out a corner of a zip lock bag and it worked out great. Thanks for the post.
