Deep-Fried Twinkies

RG

Ingredients

Twinkies

  • 6 individual Twinkies
  • Popsicle sticks
  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • Flour for dusting

Batter

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Chill or freeze Twinkies for several hours or overnight.
  2. Heat 4 cups vegetable oil in deep fryer to about 375 degrees F.
  3. To make batter: Mix together milk, vinegar and oil.
  4. In another bowl, blend flour, baking powder and salt.
  5. Whisk wet ingredients into dry and continue mixing until smooth.
  6. Refrigerate while oil heats.
  7. Push stick into Twinkie lengthwise, leaving about 2 inches to use as a handle, dust with flour and dip into the batter. Rotate Twinkie until batter covers entire cake.
  8. Place carefully in hot oil. The Twinkie will float, so hold it under with a utensil to ensure even browning. It should turn golden in 3 to 4 minutes. Depending on the size of your deep fryer, you might be able to fry only one at a time, two at the most.
  9. Remove Twinkies to a paper towel and let drain.
  10. Remove stick and allow Twinkie to sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
  11. Sprinkle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.

Makes 6.

Variation: Slice Twinkie into 4 pieces. Flour and batter each before frying. With this treatment, one Twinkie will serve two people if accompanied by a sauce.
