Hot Apple Cider Funnel Cakes

Funnel cakes take on fall with this Hot Apple Cider Funnel Cake recipe!


  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Green Mountain Naturals Hot Apple Cider cooled (brewed at 8oz setting)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Allspice
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • vegetable oil for frying

For topping:

  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon


  • Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla together until creamy. Next, add the Green Mountain Naturals Hot Apple Cider and milk slowly – beat until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl combine flour, salt, cinnamon, Allspice and baking powder. Slowly add to the wet ingredients, blending until smooth and creamy.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a 2 inch deep skillet on your stove. You’ll know the oil is hot when you place one drop of batter into the pan and it cooks quickly.
  • Using a funnel or fill an empty squeeze bottle (like a clean ketchup bottle) with batter. Pour the batter into round, funnel cake shapes, cooking one at a time. Once browned, carefully flip and cook the other side (1 minute total at the most).
  • Carefully remove from hot oil using tongs or a spatula. Drain on a dry paper towel.
  • In a small bowl combine powdered sugar and cinnamon. Using a sifter, sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over the funnel cake. Serve hot.
