Homemade Funnel Cake Bites Recipe

I LOOOVE funnel cakes!  Especially when they are piping hot out the oil and still have that slight crisp to the outside. Somebody should seriously learn how to make these things healthy because they are losing money big time!  These funnel cake bites are so light and fluffy that it almost seems unfair.

You’ll probably wonder why you haven’t tried these sooner. And then you’ll probably wonder why they don’t sell these at the fair . They’re much easier to eat, portable, and so doggone cute!!

My boys were amazed that they turned into rubber duckies as they cooked and totally thought they were chicken nuggets lol. I kinda like that they just take on whatever shape they choose.  Once I brought out the dipping sauces my little guys was over the moon!  Kids LOVE to dip and I have to admit, it was kinda fun having a variety.

These funnel cake bites taste AMAZING simply dusted with powdered sugar. But because I was feeling greedy  bored  creative, I decided to make up some yummy funnel cake dipping sauces.

I made strawberries and cream, cinnamon roll glaze, and birthday cake batter. These are super simple and quick dips. Nothing fancy to take to a party or anything.

Funnel Cake Bites & Sauce

You could even do what they do at Carnivals and crack open a can of spiced apples, blueberries or strawberries to dunk them in. Or even melted chocolate. Oh or even Nutella. Omg  no I got it…sliced bananas with melted peanut butter and chocolate syrup!!! Sweet Geezus!!

The Recipe

Funnel Cake Bites

By Divas Can Cook
4.8 from 5 reviews

Ingredients

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (optional)
  • 2 cups milk ( I used almond milk)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Canola oil, for frying
  • powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl whisk together egg, oil, butter, vanilla extract, milk and sugar (if using)
  2. Gently stir in flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Stir until flour is combined. Batter will and should be a little bit lumpy.
  4. Heat oil on med-high in a deep skillet.
  5. When oil is hot, do a test by dropping a bit of batter into the oil. (The batter should begin to fry calmly instantly. If it smokes, sputters or browns quickly the oil is too hot)
  6. Use a mini ice cream scoop and scoop out the batter and drop it into the oil. (work quickly and be careful not to crowd the batter)
  7. Fry until golden on both sides.
  8. Removed from oil and place a paper-towel lined plate.
  9. Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar.
  10. Eat immediately.
