Well, other than the 3 fun ideas we have included below, this mix can be used for Pancakes and Waffles. See how below:

  1. Pancakes. First, preheat griddle to 375 F. Put 2 cups cool water in large mixing bowl. Add 1 lb mix (#7435). Next, blend well with wire shisk until dry mis is well incorporated.

pancake funnel cake

Bringing a favorite Fair food to the comfort of our own homes. You can top these Pancake Funnel Cakes with powdered sugar (#1151), strawberries (#1214), Nutella (#7338), or caramel (#7894). Impress your family with this treat!

Pancake Funnel Cake



  1. To begin, fill a frying pan with 2 to 3 inches of canola or vegetable oil and set it over medium-high heat.
  2. Prepare the pancake mix and water in a large bowl. The mix doesn’t have to be altered for use with funnel cakes, so just follow the directions on the package.
  3. Ladle the pancake batter into a pastry bag if you are using one. Alternatively, position the funnel over the frying pan when the oil is hot enough to send a drop of water sizzling and skipping across its surface and ladle the pancake batter into it.
  4. Then, squeeze or funnel the pancake batter into the hot oil in long, thin, snaky shapes; create a casual circular pattern with the shapes.
  5. Let the funnel cake batter cook until it starts to brown on the bottom.
  6. Now, flip the dough carefully with a pancake turner to cook the opposite side.
  7. Remove the funnel cake to a plate lined with a paper towel and sprinkle it with confectioner’s sugar.
