I can’t get enough pumpkin spice this time of year! The cinnamon… the cloves… the pumpkin… it’s a mix of perfection. While planning out some delicious recipes this fall I came up with trying Pumpkin Spice Funnel Fries. With a little playing around I came up with the most delicious Pumpkin Spice Funnel Fries recipe!
They are full of all the flavors of the season in a fun, delicious treat! If you’ve never made funnel cakes or funnel fries, don’t be intimidated. Get a good thermometer and that will make all the difference.
Enjoy this yummy treat!
Pumpkin Spice Funnel Fries
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3-4 cups canola oil (for frying)
- powdered sugar (to sprinkle on top)
|Combine your dry ingredients in a bowl: flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Whisk to combine.|
|In your mixer combine the pumpkin puree, milk, eggs and sugar. Once combined slowly add the dry ingredients while the mixer is on low.|
|Mix until it's just combined.|
|Heat your oil in a deep pan until it's 350 degrees. Place pumpkin batter into a quart size ziploc bag. Cut a small corner piece off to pipe the batter into the hot oil. Squeeze 4-5 inch long "fries" into the hot oil.|
|Adjust heat as needed. Once browned on one side, flip and cook the other side. Takes about 20-30 seconds per side.|
|Place on a paper towel lined plate and immediately sprinkle with powdered sugar. Enjoy warm!|
