My mom and I found a deep-fried cheesecake recipe on Pinterest! It was a quick little video we followed from Buzzfeed’s neat video here. We decided to try this recipe out since it looked so simple and delicious. Honestly, with all the crazy viral videos out now, you never know if it actually tastes good and if it’s even possible to make it at home. So we put it to the test, keep on reading to find out.😋
First, before mixing the ingredients together, you need to heat up the oil in a pot or a deep fryer. Then set your cream cheese out to come to room temperature for easy mixing. Combine the cream cheese, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar.
Then combine all the batter ingredients in a separate bowl.
The consistency of your batter should look something like this. Basically, similar to a brownie mix, a little thick but still definitely a liquid.
Wash your strawberries and dry them off with a paper towel. Scoop the centers out of each strawberry to make room for the filling.
Stuff the cream cheese filling into the strawberries.
We used a skewer to dip the filled strawberries in the batter. Fully coat the strawberry in the batter.
Drop the strawberries into the hot oil. Put only a few at a time to not overcrowd the pot. If you overcrowd the pot, the cooking time will slow down. once the batter is golden and fluffy, grab a spoon with holes in it to take the strawberries out.
Once you take them out, place them on a paper towel to drain the excess oil.
Tap powdered sugar onto the berries once they cool.
Serve and enjoy! A viral video recipe that actually came out super delicious. It honestly wasn’t that complicated to make either. They tasted just like a strawberry cheesecake with a delicious chocolate fried coating. Be sure to stay tuned for more posts! Summer is coming soon and I will be throwing all my energy into this blog. Let’s catch the wave 🌊
