52 Weeks of Pinterest: Week 29 – Funnel Cakes!

This year I wanted to go with a resolution I would have no problem sticking to! Then as I was pinning an item on Pinterest, a light bulb flashed on above my head. Ok, maybe not literally, but this great idea popped into my head. Those of us who are Pinterest users know that we pin hundreds of things a week, but do we ever do them? So I decided this year I would do one of my pins every week. At the moment, 52 weeks of Pinterest was born. Each week I will do something I found on Pinterest rather it be a craft, new recipe, organizing technique, or whatever!

This week I went with a pin from our Budget Friendly Recipes Board: Funnel Cakes.

You know, it’s Summer time and there are fairs going on all over this place. The fair is going on this week where I live but the prices are crazy high and the only thing worth going for is the funnel cake in my opinion – so save a TON of money and stay home making your own! 🙂


What You Need:

1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup milk
1 tsp baking powder
1 ¼ cup flour
2 Tbsp sugar
¼ tsp salt
Oil for frying, enough to cover the bottom of the frying pan
Powdered sugar for topping

First you will want to put your oil in your frying pan and start heating it up to 375 degrees.

Mix all of dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a separate bowl beat your egg and then add your milk to it.

Mix your dry and wet ingredients together in a single bowl. The consistency will be that of pancake mix.

Once your oil is heated up, place your index finger over the hole in your funnel and add in your mix. Remove your finger over the pan and drizzle the mix into the pan, trying to spiral it. Don’t take a long time doing this though because the funnel cakes cook quickly. After 45 seconds  – 1 minute, grab a fork or some metal tongs and flip it over for another 30 seconds or so.


Remove from pan and let drain on paper towel. You can top these the traditional way with powdered sugar (learn how to make your own powdered sugar here) or some warm fruit topping. Either way is delicious and a heck of a lot cheaper than the fair! 🙂

Make sure to pin this to Pinterest to save for later! If you are not following us on Pinterest, make sure to do so now so you don’t miss out on some great pins!

Hope you enjoyed Week 29 of 52 Weeks of Pinterest, come back next Saturday for another attempted pin!If you don’t want to wait a week for a new pin idea, checkout our DIY posts, there are some great ideas there as well!
