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.Use 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.

Move funnel in a slow circular motion to form a spiral or other design.

*If the batter is too thick add milk 1 Tbl. at a time; this varies due to type and age of flour and altitude.Optional: pour batter slowly and in a thin stream to form designs.

Fry till brown, turn to fry so that both sides are a golden brown.Drain on paper towels and serve with dusted powdered sugar or honey butter.

Ingredients and Directions:
In a small bowl place 1 stick of real butter that is softened to room temperature, not melted.
Whip till light with a mixer.
Slowly pour in ¼ – 1/3 cup of honey depending on your taste.
Whip until light. Serve. Keep leftovers in the fridge.Copyright Carrie Groneman, A Mother’s Shadow, 2013
