Hello Irish Fans!

It’s been a while since I have posted any recipes on here, but today I have a fun one that is a little intimidating but so easy and tasty.

When I decided to give this recipe a try, a little voice in my head told me that this could definitely be a FAIL, but nope it wasn’t! It turned out pretty good and quite delicious.

Disclaimer: This recipe isn’t really a tailgate recipe it’s more of a recipe when you are at home watching the game. (Like I am every game since I live in CA) It can definitely be made after the game in celebration of a win!!

So without further ado….

Homemade Funnel Cake Recipe



1.5 tablespoons baking powder

2 cups all purpose flour

2 cups milk

½ teaspoon salt

2 eggs

2.5 tablespoons sugar

1-teaspoon vanilla extract

Vegetable oil

Powdered sugar


A. In a medium sized bowl mix together eggs, sugar, vanilla and milk. Mix well.

B. In a separate bowl mix in flour, salt and baking powder making sure its well mixed.

C. Slowly stir in the flour mix into egg mix. Stir well, the less lumps the better.

D. In a deep pan heat up about 1 ½ inches of vegetable oil (Test the heat first by dropping a small amount of batter in & seeing how it reacts.)

E. I used a gallon sized freezer bag instead of a funnel, I poured the batter into the bag and then cut off a small corner and squeezed the batter into the oil. (Similar to decorating a cake) The “correct” way to do it is to use a funnel to drop batter into oil.

F. Once you pour as much batter in as you want let one side fry and get golden brown, as soon as it, is use tongs to flip over

G. Once both sides are golden brown place it on a plate lined with paper napkins to soak up any remaining oil.

H. Sprinkle with as much powdered sugar, as you want!!!

You can honestly add so many different toppings on a funnel cake. I would have added some strawberries if I had some but it tasted so good with just the powdered sugar.

Let me know your funnel cake turns out! Trust me its worth a try!
