  • Saucepan
  • Small Mixing Bowl


  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • 2 ½ Tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup caramel syrup for topping
  • 1 cup whipping cream for topping


  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine water, 2½ Tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.
  • Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball.
  • Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • One at a time, pipe the dough directly into the hot oil in a spiral motion, pinching the dough off once the desired size has been reached.
  • Cook until dough puffs and turns golden brown, turning halfway through so both sides evenly cook, about 3-5 minutes total.
  • Carefully remove from oil and place on a paper towel-covered plate to drain for 30-60 seconds.
  • Mix 1 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon in a shallow dish or pie pan.
  • Dip the cooked funnel cakes into the cinnamon/sugar mixture and coat both sides. Shake off excess.
  • Serve immediately topping each one caramel sauce and whipped cream.


You will need about 2 quarts of oil for frying.
