    I've had these at fairs and events but never tried them.

    Fried Twinkies

    1 C. milk
    2 Tbsp. vinegar
    1 Tbsp. oil
    1 C. flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
    Chill or freeze Twinkies for several hours or overnight
    4 C. vegetable oil for frying

    Heat 4 cups vegetable oil in deep fryer to about 375 degrees.
    Prepare batter by mixing together milk, vinegar and oil. In another bowl, blend flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk wet ingredients into dry and continue mixing until smooth. Refrigerate while oil heats.

    Dust twinkie with flour and dip into the batter. Rotate Twinkie until batter covers entire cake. Place carefully in hot oil. The Twinkie will float, so hold it under with a utensil to ensure even browing. It should turn golden in 3 to 4 minutes. Depending on the size of your deep fryer, you might be able to fry only one at a time, two at the most.

    Remove Twinkie to paper towel and let drain. Let the Twinkie sit for about 5 minutes before serving. You may dust with powdered sugar before serving.
