Save Recipe


  • 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.


  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.


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.
