This Homemade Funnel Cake are a fair food classic, a special treat when ever we have the pleasure of partaking.  Just the thought of funnel cakes brings to mind sweet memories of a carnival, Disney World, or Canada’s Wonderland.  But since those days are few and far between, we started making them at home.  

They are really pretty easy to make.  Small home deep fryers are so safe and easy to use.  They don’t hold the danger that a pot of oil on the stove does, and they regulate the temperature for you, taking away the hard part of deep frying.  

They’re also quite inexpensive.   So don’t let your fear of deep frying hold you back.

I love doing something like this for a party.  We just plug-in our little deep fryer outside, beside the bbq, and cook these up for our guests while they linger around the table with a glass of wine, and some music playing in the background.

  1. Ahhhh I’m so excited for this! I’ve always wondered how to make funnel cakes, and since having to go gluten free I really really miss them & it breaks my heart I can’t eat them. Totally going to try converting this to gluten free! 🙂 Thank you for sharing!

  2. Bob’s Red Meal 1 to 1 Gluten Free flour (Whole Foods) is the best. I substitute it for recipes calling for flour. Add in place of reg flour and follow your recipe. However…DO NOT add any xanthum gum (or guar gum) as it is already in this flour. Use a spoon to scoop flour from bag into measuring cup, if not and you scoop it WITH measuring cup…too dense! Happy baking!!

  3. This Recepie is great! I love it, I’ve made Funnel Cakes several times using this exact recipe! Thanks! Keep Cooking!
