Easy Funnel cake recipe Without milk
A few weeks ago I posted a picture of these Funnel Cake Fries on Facebook and Instagram. The picture is from one of our local restaurants, but I got SO many requests for the recipe that I HAD to try to replicate these at home for you guys!! :)
Here’s how mine turned out. The flavor is SPOT ON!! :)
AND. You guys. They’re served with Marshmallow Fluff Dip. Funnel Cake Fries with Marshmallow Fluff Dip! My life is now complete. We love these SO much more than regular funnel cake because they’re so much easier to grab and eat without getting powdered sugar literally everywhere.
Making homemade funnel cakes from scratch is so easy. You only need a few ingredients, like flour, sugar, salt, milk, eggs, baking powder, and vanilla. You probably already have everything on hand right now! :)
BUT you can also totally use a funnel cake mix too! The choice is yours! :)
Here’s how easy they are to make from scratch. First, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
Then with a mixer, beat together the eggs, sugar, milk and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix very well until you have a thick batter.
For easier dispensing, I put my batter in a clean ketchup bottle.
I just poured it right in using a funnel.
You could also use a squirt bottle, a piping bag (like for frosting) or a ziploc bag with a small tip cut off.
Now add about 1 inch of vegetable or canola oil to a large pot with high sides and heat the oil over medium-high heat. You want the oil to reach around 350 degrees F. If you have a candy thermometer, great. But if not, check the oil after about 5 minutes. Drop a little batter in the oil to test it. If it sizzles real good and starts to turn golden pretty quickly, you know the oil is ready. If it doesn’t sizzle, the oil is not hot enough yet. If the oil starts to smoke, it is too hot. Turn the heat way down and drop in some batter immediately to cool it down.
Now slowly pipe the batter into the oil in a long, straight line. I did about 5 fries at a time. Let fry on one side until browned. Depending on how hot your oil is, and how big your fries are, this could take anywhere from about 30-60 seconds. Flip over and fry on the other side until browned, then quickly remove to a plate.
Immediately sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve!! :)
I am OBSESSED with this new OXO Baker’s Dusting Wand for sprinkling powdered sugar!! Twist it open and it’s a scoop for easily scooping out powdered sugar. Then twist it closed and it becomes a sifter / dusting wand. It’s got a solid bottom so you can set it down without getting powdered sugar everywhere. It’s great for sprinkling powdered sugar, cinnamon, and especially for evenly distributing flour when you need a lightly floured surface. Seriously love this thing!
The Marshmallow Fluff Dip sends these fries OVER. THE. TOP.
The dip is simply marshmallow creme that’s been warmed in the microwave. SO good!
These fries are so fluffy!! So fun for a party where everyone can grab and dip!! :)
Now, everyone knows funnel cake (and anything fried, really) is best when it’s hot out of the fryer. BUT… these funnel cake fries actually heat up pretty well in the oven the next day. Bake on a cookie sheet in an oven preheated to 450 degrees F for 3 minutes. Serve with syrup and you’ll have….
Does anybody have a good fried twinkie and an easy funnel cake recipe? | Yahoo Answers
For funnel cakes, go to allrecipes.com. Search for funnel cakes, and click on the one by TARMIA. I made it, and it was really good. Just use a lot of confectioner's sugar. You don't need that much oil though. Just 2-3 inches up the pan. I loved this recipe!
