Red Velvet Funnel Cake


  • Preparing the funnel cake batter
    • Add ¾ cup of #2615 Red Velvet Funnel Cake Mix Additive to a dry 5lb. bag of funnel cake mix and blend well. Use a whisk and blend while mix is still dry
    • Place the 90oz. of water into a large container
    • Using a blender on slow speed, or a whisk, slowly add the funnel cake mix
    • Blend until the batter is smooth
    • Pour the batter into a funnel pouring pitcher
  • Making Your Funnel Cake
    • Fill your shallow fryer to the recommended level with vegetable oil and heat to 400 degrees 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.
    • 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.
    • Do not overcook or the funnel cake will turn a dark red. It should stay bright red.
    • Remove the funnel cake and let it cool briefly.
    • Top with powdered sugar or cream cheese frosting.
