Darlene, If you deep fry a food and it ends up soggy and greasy, it means your oil wasn't hot enough or you added too much food all at once (adding cold food cools your oil). Try this again using hotter oil and adding only a small amount at once!
This recipe didn't work out for me either. I only made one at a time and my electric fry pan has a light that goes out when the oil reaches the set temp. The first one I poured as directed and it was soggy and greasy in the middle. The second one I poured more like a funnel cake and turned up the temp slightly. That was too crispy. We picked at them but I gave up at that point and didn't make anymore. My 7 up may have been a little flat. Could that be the cause of my poor results?
I'm sorry but this was very greasy and not the crispy fried dessert I was expecting it to be.Sorry
