  • Making Your Funnel Cake
    • Fill your shallow fryer to the recommended level with vegetable oil and heat to 400°F.
    • Place the funnel cake mold in the fryer
    • Pour batter into the mold from a funnel cake pitcher, starting with a circle of batter near the outer edge of the mold, then making a zig-zag overlapping design touching the outer edge circle.
    • For multiple colors in one cake, alternate pouring colors from separate pitchers
    • Do not overfill mold since the batter will expand as it cooks
    • After approximately 30 seconds remove the mold and turn the funnel cake over with tongs to achieve a golden brown on both sides.
    • Remove the funnel cake and let it cool briefly.
    • Top with powdered sugar, ice cream, honey or any kind of your favorite toppings.
