Fruity Pebbles Funnel Cakes

I’ve made my own funnel cakes for years. I rarely ever buy them from the fair or a fall festival because I can make a couple dozen of them for the same price as one costs at one of these little events. It’s super easy & doesn’t really take much time – plus, we can top them however we want without one single funnel cake costing $10.

Well, recently – on a homemade funnel cake binge with my kids – I had the idea to make a Fruity Pebble Funnel Cake and it’s just as magical as I thought it would be. Maybe even more magical.

Y’all, not only did I add fruity pebbles to the funnel cake batter but I topped them with Fruity Pebbles and I a bunch of fresh fruit to further carry out the whole fruity pebble madness flavor.

I don’t know if I can ever truly enjoy another funnel cake after indulging in this version.

Ok, I lied. I could totally indulge in a plain funnel cake. Or three. But after having this one, this version is now my ultimate favorite.

It’s also a great excuse to have dessert for breakfast. I mean, it has breakfast cereal and fresh fruit. Oh, oh…. AND, there is milk & eggs in the batter. Yup, sounds like breakfast to me. 😉

Fruity Pebbles Funnel Cakes

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups of milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3⅔ cups self rising flour (can sub all-purpose flour, just add ½ tsp salt & 2 tsps baking powder)
  • 2 cups fruity pebbles cereal, divided
  • oil for frying
  • confectioners sugar to sprinkle on top
  • whipped cream
  • fresh bananas, strawberries, & blackberries

Directions:

  1. Heat the oil in a skillet, adding enough to where the oil comes up 1-2″ in the pan.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, & vanilla extract. Mix in the flour. Stir in 1 cup of fruity pebbles cereal. Using either a funnel or a spoon, spiral your batter in the hot oil creating your funnel cake. Fry for about 1 minute, or until the edges start to turn brown. Using a spatula & tongs, flip the funnel cake. Fry for an additional minute, or until golden brown.
  3. Drain on a paper towel. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar, dollop a little whipped cream & top with the remaining fruity pebbles, to taste. Finish it off with a layer of fresh fruit.
