Funnel Cake

posted in: Recipes 0

A staple you'll find at the Ohio State Fair (they have a concession stand probably every 20 feet) is funnel cake!!! It is one of the best treats you could ever have! It's essentially a batter that's deep-fired to a crunchy, sugar-topped plate of joy.


1 1/3 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg


1/2 cup powdered sugar

oil for frying



  • Heat the oil for frying to 325 degrees
  • Add the flour, milk, baking powder, salt and egg to a bowl and mix.
  • Pour batter into a piping bag. If you don't have a piping bag, you can use anything that has a spout that allows you to get a consistent stream of batter.
  • Squeeze the batter into the oil. You have to do a circular motion with your stream of batter, trying to create something that looks like a bird's nest. If you don't swirl or zig-zag, it will turn into a huge clump of fried dough (called a donut).  You don't want to put too much batter in, you just want enough to make the nest stick to itself.
  • Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on one side.
  • Gently flip the funnel cake over so it can cook for another 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Remove it to a wire rack and sprinkle with powdered sugar.


Serve on a plate and let your friends and family enjoy.
