Scrumptious Deep Fried Coke Recipe Served At Fairs
Delicious Fair Foods
Deep Fried Cola?!?!
Okay, okay... you're probably thinking that I totally flipped my lid with posting a recipe for something that sounds sooooo strange as deep fried soda, right? For those who never had heard of this, believe me I'm sure we shared the same reaction. I learned of this dessert from watching a cooking show on the Travel Channel. The host of the show had visited different fairs, in different states, tasting different "fun foods" and the foods looked amazing! I saw the host try everything from some of the classic fair foods, such as; zeppoles, funnel cakes, chili-cheese fries, and even fried pickles!!
When the host got around to tasting the deep fried Coke, I couldn't believe it! The first thing that came to mind was... how the heck do you deep fry soda? Don't get me wrong, I thought it sounded delicious, but at the same time, it seemed almost impossible. Anyway, the host was handed a cup and a spoon full of this yummy mixture. The host took a bite and was raving so highly about it!!! I said to myself, I've gotta try this someday (and I did). Has anyone ever tasted this? It's so sweet and soooo good! If anyone has ever had this treat... please share your opinion. I love Coca-Cola and am so curious to find out what others think about this deep fried delight. I'd love to hear your take on this fair food. Please share any of your recipes, too!! Check out the fried Oreo video below, made simple with pancake batter and powdered sugar!
Deep Fried Cola
Number of Servings: 6 Prep Time: 45 mins Skill Level: Easy
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups Coca Cola
Oil for deep frying
1 cup Coca Cola syrup
1. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder.
2. Mix in eggs and Coca Cola and stir until a smooth batter forms.
3. Preheat oil in a skillet or deep fryer.
4. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into a funnel or turkey baster and in a circular motion pour batter into the hot oil.
5. Fry up for about a minute on each side and drain on paper towels.
6. Serve while still warm and top with Coca Cola syrup, whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.
This is basically a funnel cake recipe, usually enjoyed with a can of good ol' Coca-Cola. The kids love them because they're so sweet and gooey.
While you're cooking up a batch, the batter may thicken. If this happens, thin the batter by adding more Coca Cola
