Just heat your oil up to 350, make your batter and pour into a funnel, fry until golden brown. Add your preferred toppings and done!

Funnel Cakes with Box Pancake Mix


  • 2 cups pancake mix (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
  • Toppings of your choice (e.g., whipped cream, chocolate sauce, berries)


  1. Prepare the Funnel Cake Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the pancake mix, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
    • Whisk the ingredients together until you have a smooth batter. The consistency should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon but still pourable.
  2. Heat the Oil:
    • Pour enough vegetable oil into a deep, heavy-bottomed pot to reach a depth of about 2 inches.
    • Heat the oil to 350°F (175°C). Use a candy or deep-fry thermometer to monitor the temperature.
  3. Fill the Funnel:
    • Pour the batter into a funnel, covering the bottom opening with your finger to prevent the batter from flowing out.
    • Hold the funnel over the hot oil and release your finger, moving the funnel in a circular motion to create a lacy pattern as the batter flows into the oil.
  4. Fry Until Golden Brown:
    • Fry the funnel cake for about 1-2 minutes on each side, or until it turns a golden brown color.
    • Use a slotted spoon to carefully flip the funnel cake to ensure both sides are evenly cooked.
  5. Drain and Dust:
    • Once golden brown, use a slotted spoon to remove the funnel cake from the hot oil.
    • Place the funnel cake on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
    • Dust the funnel cake generously with powdered sugar.
  6. Add Toppings:
    • Customize your funnel cake with your favorite toppings. Some popular choices include whipped cream, chocolate sauce, caramel drizzle, fresh berries, or even a scoop of ice cream.
  7. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Serve the funnel cake immediately while it’s still warm and crispy.
