Reference : Recipes

I was at a big fair once and got a deep fried Twinkie. It was really good. Here's a recipe for Deep Fried Twinkies that you can do at home. You might want some adult supervision. Hot splashing oil can burn you if you're not careful.

Deep Fried Twinkies


1 Twinkie
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup corn flour
A pinch of baking soda
Milk or beer
Oil for deep frying


  1. Chill the twinkie until firm.
  2. Mix the flours and baking soda together.
  3. Add milk (traditional) or beer (which gives a lighter result) until you get a batter with the consistency of thin cream.
  4. Heat the oil until a small piece of bread will brown in a few seconds, but don't allow to smoke.
  5. Coat twinkie completely in batter. Carefully lower into hot oil and fry until golden brown (a few minutes).
  6. Let the fried twinkie cool on paper towels before you eat it.
