Transcript:Funnel Cake

Hi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make a funnel cake.

Funnel Cake Ingredients

For this recipe, you will need:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • powdered sugar

Combine the Funnel Cake Ingredients

First pour the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Use a whisk to mix these dry ingredients together.

Then, in a different bowl, crack and place the egg and then pour in all of the milk. Beat the egg and milk together.

Next, add the sugar and then stir to dissolve the sugar into the other wet ingredients.

Beat the Ingredients

Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in parts. Then, use an electric mixer to beat it smooth.

Pour the Batter Into a Skillet

Now, pour about 1 inch of oil into a skillet. Heat it over medium heat until it reaches 375 degrees. This may take about 10 minutes.

If you have one, you can pour the batter into a funnel and then let it run in and around the pan. I'm going to just pour the batter into a measuring cup, and then make circular shapes with the batter in the oil.

Cook the Funnel Cake

Cook for a few minutes until you see it is golden brown. Use tongs to carefully flip the funnel cake.

Let it cook on the other side for another minute, and when it's completely golden brown, take it out of the oil and let it drain on paper towels.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar or use other toppings such as fruit or syrups. Serve warm and enjoy.
