But the wonderful toppings aren’t the only thing that makes a Disney funnel cake great; the fluffy, fried dough is just as important. The dough is light and spongy with a very pleasant sugary flavor. Nothing can beat the crusty exterior with the soft and tasty interior.

Whether you’re taking a break from the rides in the park or having a night in with family, Disney funnel cakes are a great way to bring joy and sweetness to the mix.
Making Your Own Disney Funnel Cakes
Making your own Disney funnel cakes at home is easier than you think! All you need is a few ingredients, an oil-filled fryer and some fun decorations. Before you start rolling out the dough, you’ll want to make sure you have a good batter. To make this special batter, you need the following ingredients:
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 cups of whole milk
In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until evenly blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg and milk until they are fully combined. It’s important to make sure that the batter isn’t lumpy. Once the dry and wet ingredients are mixed, add them together and keep stirring until they are thoroughly combined.
Time to fry! Fill the fryer up with oil and bring it to 350°F. When the oil is hot, dip the tube of a funnel into the batter and let it sit for a few seconds. Release the batter into the fryer and keep the funnel in as it cooks. Make sure to turn the funnel cake every 15-20 seconds until it is golden brown. Carefully remove the funnel cakes from the fryer with tongs and let them cool on a plate or a platter.
After your tasty little cakes are cooled, it’s time to plate them. Decorate the funnel cakes with your favorite toppings, let your creativity show, and enjoy your little creations! Who says you have to go to the parks to experience the fun of Disney funnel cakes?
