I have to admit that I am a total sucker for Disney food. I just love it. It makes me happy 🙂 

In the Fall, The Hungry Bear Restaurant in Critter Country, serves these delicious Apple Pie Funnel Cakes.

There is something about a funnel cake that is so comforting. Add in some apple pie filling and the perfect Fall dessert is born.

I love eating at the Hungry Bear. There is so much room to spread out and enjoy some of the Disneyland sights and do some people watching.

You can sit at a table in the shade, right by the Rivers of America and enjoy the view of Tom Sawyer Island.

If you happen to be going there this Fall, make sure you stop by and enjoy one of these delicious treats.

If not, use this recipe to bring a little Disneyland Halloween Time magic to your home.

Disneyland Funnel Cakes

Funnel cakes can be a little intimidating, but they are actually really easy. You make a simple dough, fry it in hot oil, add some toppings and you’re ready to eat it.

I think part of what makes a funnel cake sound so hard to make is the fact that most recipes call for you to use a funnel. Hence the name, funnel cake.

If you’re like me, you don’t actually own a funnel, so improvisations have to be made. And that’s exactly what I did.

Just like when I made Disney Churros, I put the batter in a disposable piping bag and cut off the end. You totally use a gallon size zip top bag as well. So easy.

  • Heat about eight cups of vegetable or canola oil in a large heavy duty pan to about 375 degrees.
  • Place one cup of batter in a piping bag or gallon size zip top bag. Snip off the end of the bag and pipe the batter into the oil in a circular motion.
  • Fry the funnel cake for 2-3 minutes and flip over. Cook on the other side for an additional 2-3 minutes until the funnel cake is golden brown. 
  • Remove the funnel cake from the oil and allow it to drain on a paper towel.
  • To recreate Disneyland’s Apple Pie Funnel Cake: Place the cake on a large plate and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • Then top the funnel cake with apple pie filling. I used canned apple pie filling, but if you’re feeling ambitious, feel free to make your own.
  • After spreading on some apple pie filling, pipe on a large whipped cream Mickey Mouse head.
  • Drizzle caramel sauce over the whipped cream Mickey and enjoy your delicious Disneyland Apple Pie Funnel Cake right in your own home!
