Bacon Funnel Cakes

Take a state fair classic – funnel cakes – and top them with bacon bits, fresh blueberries, maple syrup, and powdered sugar for a delicious dessert that’s so good, it should win a blue ribbon!

Ingredients

3
cups vegetable or canola oil for frying
2
cups Original Bisquick™
1
cup milk
2
eggs
1/2
cup bacon bits
1
cup blueberries
1
cup maple syrup
1
cup powdered sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • 2 In a large bowl, whisk together Bisquick™, milk, and eggs. Whisk until smooth. Transfer batter into a large icing bag. Snip a 1-inch piece from the top of the bag. Test oil with a drip of the batter – if it sizzles, the oil is the right temperature.
  • 3 Drizzle batter out of the bag into the skillet of hot oil, being careful not to splatter. As you drizzle the batter, swirl it in continuous circles several times, then drizzle the batter back and forth across the swirl. Fry just until golden brown (about 1 minute). Use a long pair of tongs to gently flip the funnel cake over. Fry until second side is golden brown, about 30-45 seconds longer.
  • 4 Using tongs, transfer funnel cake to a serving plate, or to drain on a paper towel first.
  • 5 Top with bacon bits, blueberries, maple syrup, and powdered sugar. Serve warm and enjoy!

Step By Step  

Your favorite state fair food at home, with blueberries and BACON.

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Dessert or breakfast? Do you really have to choose?

Because the state fair should be a state of being.

Because cake should always be funneled.

Because bacon.

These are just a few of the millionbillion reasons it made exact and perfect sense this summer to make

BACON

FUNNEL

CAKES.

And, since that wasn’t enough, I went and topped ‘em with blueberries. And maple syrup. And powdered sugar.

The world will never be ready for such glory. But it's here!

Bisquick starts it all off. The best recipes in the world shouldn’t take more than 6 minutes.

Is it me, or is this, like, the most philosophical foodie blog post ever written?

We’re going deep, man. Deep.

With batter mixed, it's drizzled through a funnel into hot oil. 

You know what they say, when life hands you drizzly gooey white batter, make funnel cakes.

I think that was Sophocles.

It’ll take you exactly four minutes to get your first fried web of perfection. Don’t stop here. Persistence is everything.

With a stack of them on a plate, it’s time to pull out the bacon bits.

Which reminds me of one of those mighty life questions: When is the right time to pull out the bacon bits?

Guys, you know the answer is rhetorical. When is it never the right time to pull out the bacon bits?

A moment of silence to let that sink in.

Also, I had to grab the blueberries.

At this point, you’re just like ... quit with the talking and get me a bib and fork, stat!

And at that point we tell you, patience is a virtue.

But we like vices better, anyway.

Dig, Dive. Enjoy. Life is for the tasting.

Tips  

Don’t have a piping bag? You can also make these funnel cakes by spooning the batter into a clean squeeze ketchup bottle, or can make them the old-fashioned way by drizzling the batter from a measuring cup into a cooking funnel.
