Deep Fried Twinkies

Deep Fried Twinkies

6 Twinkies frozen (freeze overnight)
oil for deep frying

1 c milk
1 TBSP vegetable oil
2 TBSP vinegar
1 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix milk, oil & vinegar in 1 bowl.  Mix flour, baking powder and salt in another bowl.  Slowly add milk mixture to the flour mixture.  Unwrap a frozen Twinkie and dust lightly with flour, then dip in batter.  Drop in hot oil (usually 375 degrees) until golden brown.  Turning once.  Drain on paper towels.  Serve with powdered sugar and strawberry topping.

My hubby and I were watching food network the other night, like we do sometimes and it was all about deep fried foods.  I mean everything from hot dogs to candy bars.  One place even served deep fried Twinkies.  They looked delicious, so I searched around a little bit on the Internet and kept coming across the same basic recipe.  Tonight we tried it and loved it.  It's a new family favorite.  My daughter thinks it tastes a little bit like a funnel cake with cream inside.  My sister in law said she has had them before except with whipped cream and fresh raspberries on top.  Try them, you will love them.
