  • 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


  • 1
    Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, whisk together Bisquick™, milk, and eggs. Whisk until smooth.
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    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.
  • 5
    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.
  • 6
    Using tongs, transfer funnel cake to a serving plate, or to drain on a paper towel first.
  • 7
    Top with bacon bits, blueberries, maple syrup, and powdered sugar. Serve warm and enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    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.
