These funnel cakes are made with a simple homemade batter drizzled in hot oil and topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream and sprinkles. It’s a fair favorite, made right at home!



  1. Put vegetable oil in a small skillet (about ½-inch deep) and heat to 375ºF.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs.
  3. Add milk, water, and vanilla.  Beat again.
  4. Add flour, sugar, and baking powder.  Beat until smooth.
  5. Transfer batter to a ziplock bag. Cut one small corner off.  Swirl batter into hot oil in a circular pattern.
  6. Cook funnel cake for 2-3 minutes on each side or until it turns golden brown.
  7. Top funnel cakes with powdered sugar, whipped cream, and sprinkles.
