Funnel Cakes and Culinary Espionage On The Boardwalk

I really did not notice the “No Photos” sign until after I had taken the picture. I then realized the funnel cake guy looked really mad at me. Being the curious kind I wondered what he could possibly have to hide. I decided to make it my mission to make a funnel cake of my own.

I did a little research and found this recipe over at  It is very quick to put together and actually kind of fun to make. It is not the healthiest food but might be fun to have a taste of summer in the depths of winter.

Funnel cake  recipe


  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Confectioners' sugar

I even attempted this replacing 1/3rd of the flour with whole wheat. I would not recommend this as the finished product is not as light and airy.


Of course this can be served with any number of toppings but I had mine with some Nutella. In my humble opinion my homemade version was better than his offerings.
