Like funnel cakes but in strip form, these light and airy dessert fries are easy and fun to prepare. 


How to make it

  • 1

    In medium bowl, whisk together Pearl Milling Company® Original Pancake and Waffle Mix, sugar and salt. Whisk in 1/2 cup cold water and vanilla until combined. The batter should be cakelike in consistency — not too thick and not too runny. Adjust with 1 to 2 tbsp water if needed.

  • 2

    Transfer batter to piping bag fitted with 1/4-inch round tip.

  • 3

    Pour enough oil into medium saucepan or high-sided skillet to reach 4 inches up sides of pan. Heat over medium heat until shimmering or instant-read thermometer registers 350°F.

  • 4

    In batches, pipe 3 to 4 strips of batter into hot oil, each about 5 inches long. Fry for 45 to 60 seconds, flipping once, until golden brown. Transfer pancake fries to paper towel–lined baking sheet to drain. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • 5

    Dust pancake fries with confectioners’ sugar and drizzle with Pearl Milling Company® Original Syrup. If desired, serve with whipped cream and strawberries.

Tips & Tricks

  • Alternatively, serve pancake fries with syrup, whipped cream and chocolate sauce for dipping.
  • If serving pancake fries nacho-style, substitute whipped cream with vanilla ice cream.
