Fun Food Recipes

Delicious Boardwalk food you can try at home.

Funnel Cake

2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

Fill a deep cast-iron or electric skillet half way with canola or vegetable oil, heat oil to 375°

Mix wet and dry ingredients in a large bowl with an electric mixer until a smooth batter forms.

Pour batter into a funnel or squeeze bottle (or liquid measuring cup if you don’t have a funnel). Then, pour the batter in a circular motion over the oil to create that classic funnel cake look.

Cook for 1 – 2 minutes (until golden brown and puffy) on each side. Remove from oil with tongs and place on a plate or baking sheet with paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy. Kick it up with other toppings like chocolate sauce, strawberries or whipped cream!? (This recipe can make approximately 8 funnel cakes)
