I don’t think I’ve ever been as obsessed with cook books as I have been this summer. I’ve literally DOUBLED my collection, a lot of it has to do with the cook books I’ve gotten to review which has been awesome. If there was one cook book this summer that I was able to review that seemed to be built for Summer time it was John McLemore’s “Dadgum, That’s Good”. The entire book is filled with recipes for Smoking, Grilling, Frying, Boiling and Steaming! B was pretty much salivating over this book and I’m pretty sure it’s the sole reason why he looks at smokers every time we go to the store, he’s pretty much determined to get one!
Start by making the pancake batter, you can use a mix but I didn’t have any so I made my own. Take two tablespoons of white vinegar and 3/4 cup of milk and combine in a small bowl. Allow to sit for 5 minutes. In the meantime combine 1 Cup Flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl:
Once you’ve let the milk sour add it to the flour mixture
Then add your two tablespoons of melted butter and one egg
Then it’s time to coat your Oreos
After a minute or so flip them
Then take them out, drain them on a paper towel and then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
I went with more of a coating then a sprinkle. You can NEVER have too much powdered sugar when it comes to Fried Oreos, or anything for that matter.
For Pancake Batter
2 Tablespoons White Vinegar
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons White Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons melted butter
For the Fried Oreos
Cooking Oil (Amount depends on your fryer/pan)
- Heat your oil to 375 degrees which will take about 15-20 minutes.
- Combine wilk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside to let sit for 5 minutes.
- Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the sour milk mixture to the flour mixture. Then add 1 egg and melted butter. Whisk until there are no more lumps.
- Dip the cookies into the batter one at a time and place directly into the hot oil frying 4-5 cookies at a time.
- Fry the cookies 1 minute per side until they are golden brown, then drain on a paper towel.
- Serve the cookies immediately with powdered sugar sprinkled on top!
