Funfetti Fritters

Yeah, this post is about fried cake.

If you are appalled by the fact that I deep fried Funfetti, then I sincerely apologize, but you should really leave now.

 

Don’t you hate that?  When someone apologizes and then says “but”… it’s kinda the worst…

So again, I apologize for saying “but” after I apologized for fried Funfetti…BUT my point is that today is fried cake, whether you like it or not.

So there, I just totally apologized twice without really apologizing.

 

Adding the “but” REALLY means, “I’m sorry you disagree with me and got your feelings hurt, BUT I am totally right and here’s why…”

So, really I should have just said, “If you don’t like fried Funfetti go suck it, because that’s what we’re talking about today.”

The end.

 

Ok, Funfetti Fritters.  They’re real and it’s happening.

If you don’t like frying food, you’re not alone.  While I enjoy eating fried stuff, making it is not my thing.  But you know, once in a while it kinda necessary to fry cake balls.  That’s my life’s motto, feel free to use it.

 

Now, full disclosure, I got the idea for these little beauties on my trip to Ohio last week.  I actually visited the Smuckers headquarters and they served these delicious little cake poppers for breakfast one day.  They didn’t give me the recipe, so this is my attempt to re-create them!

First, make your batter…not quite like it says on the box, just a little variation.

In the mixer, beat together your cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup water and 2 Tbsp oil for 2 minutes.

Heat oil to 300° on your stove top, or if you are a proud owner of a Fry-Daddy, you should definitely use that!

I know I told y’all a while back that I got selected to Test Drive a Frigidaire Gallery Range with Symmetry Double Oven.  Well, I have been using it now for the past few weeks and love it!  Like I wanna marry it kind of love.  How did I ever live without a double oven, I have no idea.  It’s kinda like once you have a dvr you could never go back to watching regular real-time tv.  Same concept applies.

Anyway, I heated my oil on my pretty new oven…love the digital display to control the range temperature!

After the oil came up to 300° I started dropping the batter in, about a teaspoon for each fritter.

They took about 1 minute to fry up since they’re so small, about 30 seconds on each side.  But remove them when they are a pretty golden brown color with a slotted spoon, transferring to a paper towel lined plate.

When you are finished frying sprinkle them with powdered sugar.  It’s the right thing to do.

And you’re done.  Really, that’s it!

And then try one.  You’ll be happy you did.  They are as good as they sound.

    So you know when Homer Simpson sees something delicious and he does that incoherent mumbling/drooling thing? Picture me doing that at work… And people walking by my office and wondering what’s wrong with me. And then me saying “You gotta see this…” My husband is going to go crazy for these.

  2. I typically don’t eat any fried food, but I make an exception for two things. Zeppoles and falafel. And these are basically zeppoles on crack. Really really delicious rainbow crack.

    These are delicious….thanks so much for the recipe. No problem with the “but”. A long time ago I attended a class and one of the things taught to us was how to not use the “negative BUT”. Instead of using it, just substitute the word “yet” and I was amazed at what a difference it made in my writing….just thought you would like it, too.

  4. Seriously I’m sending you the bill for my gym membership. Fried Cake!!!!! wow.

    I have serious oven envy. Mine just broke and you have my dream oven but alas I have to feed my kids and pay bills and grown up stuff like that so the fancy oven will have to wait.

    Hey!! So…

    This sounds completely amazing and I can’t wait to try it, but wondering…. you know how you add a thing of frosting into the already baked cake to make cake balls… how would
    or could i incorporate that idea into these yummy treats!? I’m more of a frosting fan, so would these just likely not be my thing?? If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears. It really does sound delicious!
