  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  • Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla together and then add the milk slowly–beat. Add the canned pumpkin, continue to beat until ingredients are well blended.
  • Add the dry ingredients and beat until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour batter into a squeeze bottle or funnel
  • When the oil becomes hot, squeeze the batter into the shape you want your mini cakes to be (I only do one at a time)
  • Move the funnel around to make designs - if you are super creative you can write things, make special designs, etc.
  • Brown on both sides...which for minis took about 30 seconds on each side. Remove from hot oil and 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 crispies.
