Funnel Cake & Honey Butter

Does funnel cake remind you of the county and state fairs?  It does me and great times together as a family. 

We were always involved in 4-H so we would go to the fairs to see which ribbons my kids were awarded.  I hope you enjoy this version of fair food.  

The honey butter…what needs to be said?  It is great on funnel cake, toast, muffins, on a spoon….



1 1/8 cups flour

¼ cup sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

¾ tsp. baking powder

¼ tsp. salt

1 egg

¾ cup milk (may need 1-2 Tbl additional)

 Vegetable or canola oil for frying


In a small bowl combine the dry ingredients.

Add in the egg and milk; beat until smooth

Heat ½- 1 inch oil in an electric fry pan to 375 degrees.Funnel Cake & Honey Butter 1Use a funnel with an opening of approximately ½”.

Cover the bottom opening of the funnel with finger.

Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter into the funnel.

Remove finger from funnel end to release batter into hot oil.

  2. I love funnel cakes. I mean, they are literally the only reason I go to the fair. I bet they are great topped with honey butter.

    I’d love for you to stop by Manic Monday tomorrow at 8pm EST.

    Boy would my kids love this. They always want a funnel cake when we go somewhere that sells them. I have never tried making them at home. You make it look so easy. I might just have to try it sometime.
