Fried Twinkie

The other day I was watching Home Shopping Network. They were selling a fryer by Wolfgang Puck. I watched him fry all kinds of food, so I ordered the fryer. They had it marked down, plus free shipping, how could I not order it. I had bought a Fry Daddy at Walmart and hated it. It had no temperature adjustment, no basket. The food just fell to the bottom and burned. They give you a plastic scoop to scoop out the food, and it melted all over the bottom and would not clean off. I took at back to Walmart and told them it was awful to use. The fryer I ordered, came in the mail in just 2 days. I love it. I fried tempora shrimp and it tasted great. Then my son said he wanted me to fry a Twinkie cake. I found a recipe and made the batter and fried it. I also made a video of it too.

Put your Twinkie in the freezer to get it cold a few hours first.

The batter:

1 cup milk, 2 tablespoons vanilla, 1 cup flour, 1 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil.

Mix the dry ingredients and then add the liquid. Whisk together. Dip the Twinkie in the batter but let some drip off. Put in 375 degree oil and fry until golden color. Drain on a paper towel and let it cool a few minutes. Sprinkle some powdered sugar all over it and eat it.

My son loved it. I took a bit, it reminded me of a funnel cake with a cream center. My son said it made him feel happy to eat it.

You can watch my video on how to make it here.
