Cooking With Love: Homemade Funnel Cakes

I saw a recipe this week on The Chew to make homemade Funnel Cakes. Having just got back from Ocean City and enjoying a hot funnel cake on the Boardwalk, I thought a lazy Sunday afternoon would be the perfect setting to gather the family around & reminisce over about our vacation over hot funnel cakes in my kitchen.

I followed the recipe - Daphne Oz's Funnel Cakes – but I had to had about a 1/2 cup more flour to make the batter just a tad thicker. You could probably use a box of pancake mix, but I would add sugar & vanilla to get the same taste.


MAKE SURE THE OIL IS H.O.T. by dropping a bit into the oil and making sure it fries up.


Don’t walk away cause they cook fast.Like 30 sec on each side fast. I used two spatulas to turn it over and placed the hot funnel cake on a napkin covered plate.

We topped with strawberry compote & powdered sugar. You can do any number of combinations.


It was a good evening with the family.
