Cakespy: Deep-Fried Cupcakes on a Stick
Note: Jessie Oleson (aka Cakespy) drops by every Monday to share a delicious dessert recipe.
First things first. The title of this recipe has probably brought up a serious question, and I'd like to answer it straightaway.
The answer is yes, I am trying to kill you, Paula Deen style. These deep-fried cupcakes on sticks may in fact not stick to your New Year's resolution plan, but they're delicious.
The thick batter seals moisture into the cake, and the oil infuses it with a light savoriness that makes them absolutely tantalizing. The taste is like the intersection of childhood nostalgia and greasy fair food.
