Easy Funnel Cake Fries

What Are Funnel Cake Fries?

This easy recipe is made using pancake mix, which keeps it simple while still giving the texture of funnel cake. The fry form also makes it easier for dipping in caramel or chocolate sauce!

You'll need buttermilk pancake mix and a few other simple ingredients to make this easy recipe.

What You'll Need

Whisk together the pancake mix, cold water, sugar, salt, and vanilla in a medium bowl.

Make the Batter

Heat the Oil

Pour batter into a pipping bag. Then heat at least 3 inches of oil to 340-350 degrees F in a large pan.

Cook the Fries

Pipe strips into the oil, no more than 6 inches long. You should be able to fit 3-4 at a time.


Flip the fries after about 20-30 seconds and cook for 20-30 more seconds or until golden.


Remove from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat until all the batter is fried.

Add Powdered Sugar

Dust the fries while warm with powdered sugar using a mesh strainer.


Drizzle with whipped cream and strawberries, or serve with caramel sauce for dipping!
