Hi guys!I'm Laura Vitale and on this episode of Laura in the Kitchen, I'm going to show
you how to make funnel cakes!
Now, a while back I posted a video here asking what your favorite boardwalk food is, and
one of them - the most requested was funnel cake. And, I am giving a shout out to my girl
Latasha C. I know she's a really big fan and supporter of mine - on pretty much all of
my channels and I really appreciate your support so much Latasha, so in honor of you and this
being one of your favorites, I decided to make this today - and I'm really excited because
I love funnel cakes.
And it really, truly is just one of those things that I don't really eat very often.
I don't find myself - I mean, it's a treat food, you know what I mean? So, I'm really
excited to share it with you today, and thank you so much to all of you that left a comment,
and I have two more videos coming up in the future - two remaining recipes that you requested
and your shout outs.
So stay tuned for that.
But, to get started, you are going to need very - to make actual funnel cake is really
really easy and simple. You;ll need some all purpose flour, salt, baking powder, granulated
sugar, whole milk, eggs, vanilla extract and vegetable oil. Now what I have here is a ten
inch cast iron skillet. You want to fill it half way up with vegetable oil.
You don't want to go any higher than that or any lower. It's really difficult for me
to tell you how much oil you need - you just need enough to fill your skillet half way
up the sides.
So, that's getting nice and hot, over about 375F degrees. I have a little wooden spoon
here, I don't have a thermometer, so here's a tip.
You put the end of a wooden spoon in there.
You see bubbles all around the edge - the base?
That means your oil is hot enough. So, I've got that going and let's get going on our
batter. It's so easy, think of this as like pancake batter. Because that's really all
it is. It's a tiny bit different as far as the amounts of everything you need - the ratio.
The eggs, I put them in there, I also like to add just a splash of vanilla, I need a
little vanilla in mine. And then I like to whisk these together just to give them a heads
up before we put them into the dry ingredients.
Now, what I have here is a funnel cake funnel? pourer? I don't even know what you call this
- but basically a long time ago, I bought, online, a funnel cake kit because it came
with this and the reason why I like to use this and I know a lot of people use a funnel
- to use a funnel, you have to hold your finger at the very bottom of the funnel so that none
of the batter spills out and you release when you're really close to the oil.
I find that to be very dangerous, so think about this. You have the funnel here, you
are moving your finger, the batter goes in, the oil splashes up, you get burned, that's
so unsafe and I don't like that.
So, I suggest really looking into one of these, they are so inexpensive. I think it was like
five bucks. If you don't have this, you don't want to look for it, you can't find it, use
a measuring cup with a really nice spout, that way it's easy for you to pour it in.
Just be careful that not everything comes out at the same time.
Just wanted to give you that tip because I don't want you to use a funnel, I think that's
really dangerous.
So I'm just whisking these together briefly, they don't have to be perfect, I"m bringing
my dry ingredients closer to me and I"m going to pour this in.
And now what I'm going to do is I am just going to mix this together really well until
I have a really nice smooth batter. A few little lumps here and there is okay but for
the most part you do want this to be kind of smooth.
That's perfect! That's what I'm looking for. I'm just going to take my little ladle here
- how appropriate, I'm going to fill this up. I don't want to fill the whole thing up,
I'm going to do it in batches just because I find it easier to pour this when it's not
super super full.
Now in a pretty steady stream, I do this in like a big circle, right - and then I kind
of go over top like that.
Look at the perfect consistency.
I love you so much!
I kill myself.
I kill myself I tell ya!
What I have back here is a baking sheet that I've lined pretty well with some paper towels
just because you need to drain out the excess oil. Now, can you just look at the puffiness
of this thing?
I mean, come on!
Now you know it's going to be good, you know it's going to be golden brown - and you do
want this to be a beautiful deep golden brown on both sides. Just because it is going to
be the texture of an actual funnel cake.
The amount this makes, depending on how big you make them, this size, I'm going to say
you're probably going to get maybe three or four because they're pretty big. But normally,
you would get about 6 out of this recipe. But, as always, will
have the recipe written and all the instructions and everything.
I'm going to babysit this until it's beautiful golden brown, going to flip it, and it should
flip really really easily. I'm actually - I want to show you when I flip it, but you can
see - especially on this side, it's getting beautiful, it needs to be a little bit darker
brown, it's a little too light still. And my favorite part are these little itty bitty
pieces right there. I don't know why all the little itty bitty pieces on the edges, it's
like, to me, that's the best part of anything that's fried is the little edges that get
so so crispy. That's the best.
I'm just going to babysit this and then we'll flip it and then we'll keep on going.
As that finishes cooking, I'm just going to dig into one. I'm going to go for this one
right here because it's pointless to make yourself, and myself wait any longer.
I'm so happy!
I'm so happy that on a weekend night, I'm at home making funnel cakes.
I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Perfectly crispy which you can hear. Look at that, on the side. It's perfectly cooked,
you can top these with whatever you want. Personally, nothing is better than powdered
Look at that one!
Now, I've got people to tend to, two more to make, and you need to hop on over to
to get this recipe and make them for your friends and family this weekend!
Hope you have enjoyed spending time with me, Latasha, thank you so much for your suggestion,
and everyone else, thank you so much for your wonderful suggestions. And any time you want
to leave me a suggestion for a recipe, please do so down below, I always read all of your
