Deep Fried Twinkies With Berry Sauce

Recipe by True Texas
READY IN: 20mins




  • Chill or freeze Twinkies for several hours or overnight.
  • Heat 4 cups vegetable oil in deep fryer to about 375 degrees.
  • Mix together milk, vinegar and oil.
  • In another bowl, blend flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Whisk wet ingredients into dry and continue mixing until smooth. Refrigerate while oil heats.
  • Push stick into Twinkie lengthwise, leaving about 2 inches to use as a handle, dust with flour and dip into the batter. Rotate Twinkie until batter covers entire cake.
  • Place carefully in hot oil. The Twinkie will float, so hold it under with a utensil to ensure even browning. It should turn golden in 3 to 4 minutes. Depending on the size of your deep fryer, you might be able to fry only one at a time, two at the most.
  • Remove Twinkie to paper towel and let drain. Remove stick and allow Twinkie to sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
  • Variation: Slice Twinkie into 4 pieces. Flour and batter each before frying. With this treatment, one Twinkie will serve two people if accompanied by a sauce.

  • In a saucepan, heat preserves over low heat until melted.
