Deep-Fried Cake Batter With Vanilla Frosting Is Maybe Even Better Than Cake Itself — Get The Recipe

Allow me to introduce you to a little something called deep-fried cake batter. It came to my attention pretty early on in life that I enjoy cake batter more than I enjoy cake. That being said, I know that sitting down to a bowl of cake batter and spoon isn’t exactly socially acceptable, so I needed to devise a way of enjoying succulent scoops of cake batter without raising too many eyebrows ... and I think I did it. These little batter balls are filled with all of that cake-battery goodness with none of the strange looks. Well, there will still be some strange looks, but at this point, I’m used to it!

Anyway, I'm in love with these beautiful bites of batter, and I think you will be too. The lightest, most delicate shell is so crispy on the outside, and lovingly hugs the moist and tender, batter-filled center. There is nothing like these, and you will never be able to eat just one. As if they could get any better, dip one (or 10) into some sprinkley frosting, and OMG — cake batter heaven.

What you'll need:

  • One box of your fave cake mix. I used Funfetti because, well, it's fun and fetti.
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • Oil for frying (I used canola)
  • Frosting of your choice
  • Sprinkles for sprinkling


1. Mix up the cake batter according to the box instructions, and add in one extra cup of flour until it’s thick and smooth.

2. Scoop approximately one tablespoon of the batter, and drop it gently into the hot (350 degree) oil.

3. Fry them up until they are golden on all sides. Let them cool on some paper towels, and top them with some fun sprinkles. Check them on the inside... that's where all the love is.

4. Plunge those warm batter babies into some frosting (because you can), and dig in!
