HOW TO MAKE FRIED CHEESECAKE
Deep Fried Cheesecake only requires a few simple ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, milk and oil. Scroll down for recipe video!
First, freeze your leftover cheesecake for 1 hour, and then cut it into 1-2 inch cubes. (Don’t worry, and it will turn into ball shapes after being covered with batter and deep fried!)
You can use pancake batter or make your own homemade deep fried cheesecake batter.
Then heat up a quart of oil in a saucepan to 375°F (this can take 10 minutes or longer). A thermometer is recommended to make sure the oil stays at the right temperature. Then dip your cheesecake pieces into the batter and slowly drop it in the saucepan. Fry about 3 minutes for each piece. The square piece will magically turn into cheesecake balls in the oil. Repeat the process until all the pieces have been fried to perfect golden-brown.
Use a slotted spoon to take them out and place on a plate with paper towel on top. Dust with powder sugar and drizzle with your favorite sauce.
The secret to making perfect Fried Cheesecake is the deep-frying technique. You have to get the temperature right and fry them for the right amount of time to achieve the perfect texture!
If you’d like a lighter crust for these delicious bites, you can use the combination of wheat flour and rice flour in the batter. This variation is called tempura cheesecake.
WHAT KIND OF SUACE GOES WITH FRIED CHEESCAKE?
Some of my favorite dipping sauce include strawberry sauce, caramel sauce and chocolate sauce. When combined with fried cheesecake balls, they taste out-of-this-world delicious!
CAN YOU REHEAT DEEP FRIED CHEESECAKE?
These fried cheesecake bites taste best when they are fresh. I don’t recommend reheating them, as you will lose the crispy texture and it’s easy to break them.
CAN YOU MAKE FRIED CHEESECAKE IN A PAN?
Deep fryer works best for this recipe, but if you don’t have one you can make it in a deep pan. Add at least 2 inches of oil and follow the instructions to fry the until crispy and brown.
