This one's dedicated to all of you who made New Year's resolutions to eat healthier: deep fried cupcakes on a stick.
These babies were made for the weekly CakeSpy installment on Serious Eats, inspired by a deep fried candy bar recipe; each little cake was speared on a stick, chilled, then battered up and fried until it reached a perfect golden hue. The resulting taste, which falls somewhere between childhood nostalgia and greasy fair food, is alarmingly addictive.
And hey, if it is in fact a one way ticket to Heart Attack City, at least we had a good run.
