Deep Fried Strawberries

Recently my friend Phyllis posted a photo of a deep fried strawberry. In a million years I would never have thought of the words deep, fried and strawberry together.  But it looked so pretty and elegant and in today's day and age where we are deep frying pickles and candy bars, why not?

So, I got to thinking about a vegan batter to dip and fry some strawberries. As I didn't start this process until about 8 PM I will admit I took the lazy route and tried to do this with as few ingredients as possible.  It was super easy to do, and when my daughter tried them her exact words were "Mom, I don't like these, I love these!"

While not particularly healthy, these were a fun dessert to make and eat.

Deep Fried Strawberries

1 cup Bisquick pancake mix (yes it is vegan!)
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp non dairy vanilla milk (I used So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk)
1 quart strawberries
Vegetable oil for frying (I used canola)
Powdered Sugar
Chocolate syrup

Preheat oil to 375 degrees (these are best done in a deep fryer).

Mix the Bisquick and vanilla non dairy milk in a bowl. This will form a very thick batter.  Dip strawberries into the batter.  You may need to spread it with a spoon or knife to coat the strawberry well.  Drop the strawberries into the heated oil and fry until batter is golden brown (note, if you have strawberries with a long stem you can just hold the battered part in the oil to fry). Remove and drain on paper towels.

Serve with chocolate sauce and powdered sugar.


  1. That looks absolutely sinful! Must try it!

  2. Will you please bring these to Philadelphia :) They look amazing!

  3. These sound so yummy---I probably won't make them though, as I have an issue with stopping eating things like this :)
