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.

Another experience with spreading: I made two batches, one using a GF cake mix (and they turned out great in both consistency and taste!), another batch using a B—– C—— cake mix. My oil was definitely the right temperature both times. The batter for the B—– C—— was thinner; but I tried it anyway; it spread and didn’t turn out nearly as well. If I use that brand again, I’ll either add extra flour first to see if I can thicken it up more, or maybe take out an egg. My son uses cake mix for dessert waffles all the… Read more »

so… i was really excited to try this recipe, and i did right away… but mine do not look as beautiful. when i put the cake balls in the oil, they kind of expanded and by the time i went to flip them it looked a little bit like cake-batter-hot-oil-soup. =( what could i have done wrong? i am determined to try this again and get it right! the only thing i can think of is the oil temp… i don’t have a thermometer so i just put my electric stove on medium-high. do you think that was the problem?

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.
