Are funnel cake mix and pancake mix the same thing?

Funnel cakes involve a very basic batter recipe. While this particular recipe doesn’t make the best pancakes, you can use pancake flour to make a funnel cake batter.

Can you keep the funnel cake batter in the fridge?

Yes! Funnel cake batter keeps in the refrigerator for about 24 hours, so you can make your funnel cake when you’re ready. It will start to change color at the end of that time frame.
