Winona's Perfect Golden Fry Batter

Total Time

This is the recipe my Mom has used for many years. We have an annual shrimp fry, and this is the perfect batter. Veggies, chicken, and even dill pickle slices are great using this fry batter!


  1. Stir oil into the flour.
  2. Add milk and egg, whipping with whisk until smooth.
  3. Mixture should have the consistency of heavy cream. If it is too thick, add milk one tablespoon at a time until until it "looks right".
  4. The perfect breading with this batter is cracker meal. Just whirl the crackers in your processor until it is very fine.
