What is the secret to enjoying this traditional fair food in your home? It turns you can easily create funnel cake with pancake mix!

Funnel Cake

Funnel cake is one of these foods that I’ve just eaten at fairs or carnivals. If you’ve never had funnel cake, then this drool-worthy dessert is hard to resist. It’s a crispy fried candy cake usually topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream, or chocolate sauce. Do you understand that amazing smell in the food court area in a fair? That is usually funneled cake.

Funnel Cake Made With Pancake Mix

Funnel cake may seem a bit intimidating to make at home, but it’s pretty simple, thanks to Krusteaz Pancake Mix. The delicious Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix you use to whip up a stack of pancakes can also be employed to funnel cake. And let me tell you, it is a gorgeous thing.

I love that Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix makes this SO easy. I also love that they utilize yummy, quality ingredients, no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

The Way To Make Funnel Cake

Making homemade funnel cake is quite simple. Pancake mix is blended with oil, eggs, sugar, vanilla, milk, and salt.

The batter is then poured or refrigerated into hot oil and fried till golden brown. While I have never been overly comfortable with frying foods, this is as simple as it gets. We attempted both funneling our pancake batter to the pan and with a squeeze bottle. The squeeze bottle is a bit easier to control, but the results have been the same either way.

Be certain that you be careful when frying anything, and keep the children and pets away from the cooker to be safe if hot oil spatters because it occasionally does. The US Dept of Agriculture has some great strategies for security when frying foods if you are new to frying foods or require a refresher on security (we can all use that!).

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 6 Servings 1x
  • Category: Dessert
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups Krusteaz Pancake Mix
  • Oil for frying Canola and peanut oil work well, impart a neutral flavor and have a high flash point.

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, milk, and vanilla. Beat well until just combined.
  2. Add the Krusteaz pancake mix, granulated sugar and salt to the liquid mixture and stir to combine.
  3. The ingredients should be well incorporated, but do not mix too much.
  4. Add approximately 1 1/2 “- 2” of oil to heavy bottom skillet, Dutch oven, or cast iron skillet *.
  5. Heat the oil to 375 degrees F.
  6. If you don’t have a thermometer, you will know the oil is done when you drop a small drop of paste into the oil and it will immediately bubble and sizzle.
  7. Add about 1/4 of the batter to a funnel, piping bag, or squeeze bottle, covering opening with fingers until ready to pour into oil. Holding the funnel / bag / bottle several inches above the oil, remove your finger and move the batter into the oil, overlapping on itself, until the batter is fully distributed.
  8. Fry until bottom is golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes, then gently flip with tongs and fry until second side is golden brown. Carefully remove and immediately place on a plate lined with paper towels to help drain excess oil. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, add ingredients, and serve immediately.

Notes

Additional oil may be needed after the first funnel cakes are baked. If additional oil is added, the temperature will likely drop, so make sure you have time to return to 375 degrees before you bake your next funnel cake.

Why is my funnel cake falling apart?

I found that when my oil is too hot, funnel cakes fall apart more easily during baking. Once your oil is hot enough, use your squeeze bottle to pour in the paste. If you hold the bottle further away from the oil while pouring, the paste is less likely to stick.
