What is Funnel Cake, exactly?

When European settlers brought the technique of pouring cake batter into heated oil through a funnel into hot oil, it was given the name funnel cake. The batter would form a squiggly, pancake-like dessert with powdered sugar, fruits, and whipped cream on top.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla

Frying and Serving

3 cups vegetable oil, or canola oil
powdered sugar, optional
caramel sauce, optional
marshmallow fluff, optional


In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, milk and vanilla together until frothy.
Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and blend until smooth, ensuring no lumps.
