  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • Oil for frying


  1. In a small bowl mix flour, salt, baking powder and set aside.
  2. In another large bowl, whisk eggs and sugar, add milk and vanilla, and whisk to combine.

  3. Add flour mixture into the egg mixture and whisk until smooth.
  4. Place a frying pan over medium-high heat and add oil about 1 inch high.
  5. When the oil is hot, pour batter into a piping bag and cut the tip to resemble a funnel, when ready to use. Block the tip with your finger.
  6. Position funnel over the hot oil, blocking the tip with your finger and slowly move your finger so the batter comes out in a steady stream. Make circular and crisscross motions to form a funnel cake.
  7. Using tongs, flip the funnel cake so each side is cooked until golden-brown. Remove and place on paper towels to drain.
  8. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top and serve with whipped cream and strawberries.
