📋 Ingredients:

For the Cheesecake Bites:

  • 🍰 1 frozen cheesecake, cut into bite-sized cubes (store-bought or homemade)

For the Batter:

  • 🌾 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 🥄 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 🧂 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 🧂 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 🥚 1 large egg
  • 🥛 1 cup milk
  • 🌿 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Frying:

  • 🥤 Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 🥄 Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
  • 🍯 Chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, or strawberry sauce, for drizzling (optional)

📝 Directions:

1️⃣ Prepare the Cheesecake Bites:

  • Cut the frozen cheesecake into bite-sized cubes. Place the cubes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze them for at least 1 hour, or until firm.

2️⃣ Make the Batter:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and vanilla extract.
  • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until smooth and well combined.

3️⃣ Heat the Oil:

  • In a deep fryer or large, heavy-bottomed pot, heat the vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C). Make sure there is enough oil to fully submerge the cheesecake bites.

4️⃣ Coat and Fry the Cheesecake Bites:

  • Working in batches, dip the frozen cheesecake bites into the batter, coating them completely. Allow any excess batter to drip off.
  • Carefully lower the battered cheesecake bites into the hot oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Use a slotted spoon to remove the bites from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

5️⃣ Serve:

  • Dust the fried cheesecake bites with powdered sugar if desired.
  • Serve warm with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, or strawberry sauce.
