Can I just put it out there, that this may be my favorite recipe of all time!? Ha!

I have made these several times, and after you see how easy this recipe is…so will you. Seriously – you will want to make these all of the time!

There is a time and a place for healthy eating and constraint.

This is not that time…


Deep Fried Twinkies

6 Hostess “Twinkies”
Vegetable Oil

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

White all-purpose flour, for dusting and rolling

Start by freezing your Twinkies for at least 2 hours.

When ready, heat the vegetable oil in a large pot on the stove (or your deep fryer) to 375 degrees F.

In a large bowl mix together the whole white milk, white vinegar, vegetable oil, white all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt.

Dust and roll Twinkies in the white all-purpose flour before dipping them completely into the batter.

Gently shake a little of the batter off the Twinkies before adding them to the preheated oil.

Allow them to fry for about four minutes.

Remove from the fryer and drain on paper towels.

Serve dusted with powdered sugar, chocolate syrup, fruit, or a combination.

Serve warm.
