Homemade Buttermilk Panacakes and Funnel Cakes

Thanks to Meredith at La Buena Vida, I had a huge craving for pancakes with peanut butter this weekend.

We were out of mix so decided to try some. To be honest- I cannot for the life of me remember where I got the recipe. But oh well- they were too salty anyway. Perhaps our buttermilk is different? We used the powdered stuff that you add water too. I don't know. But when you covered the pancake in peanut butter and syrup- the salt factor disappeared and only the yum factor remained.

Chris was not as pleased with the pancakes as I was, so he made Homemade Funnel Cakes this weekend too. Chris LOVES funnel cakes. Every time we go to a fair or carnival he always scopes out the funnel cakes.

Chris wanted full credit for the funnel cakes on the blog- just so you know. This was all him.

I found the recipe though.

Homemade Funnel Cakes
from Heavenly Homemakers

  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar or sucanat
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • Oil for frying (I used up some canola oil)
  • powdered sugar for sprinkling
  1. Mix all ingredients well.
  2. Place in a bag with cake decorating tips like so: Or just try to push is through a funnel.
  3. Heat an electric skillet to 350 degrees, and squirt mix into hot oil.
  4. Cook on both sides for about a minute or two.
  5. Sprinkle with sugar and enjoy!

oh my goodness, those pancakes look yummy and I'm so impressed you attempted funnel cakes on your own! I tend to leave that to the carnival :)

Yeah, I've heard the powdered Buttermilk is more salty!

I always do the PB on waffles, but I will have to try it on pancakes too!

Yum! I love funnel cakes with powdered sugar on them. So delicious. Something tells me I'm going to have to make these soon.

Funnel cakes bring the sights, sounds, and smells of the county fair to me - fun memories!

Tell Chris that I am totally with him on the funnel cakes. That's the first thing I go get when I'm at a fair. :)
