Fat Fried in Fat Covered in Fat?

This is a scary recipe to me! But you know people will eat anything that is cooked at a State Fair. So how many of y'all are heading out to get yours?

Fried Butter

Butter center:

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons cream cheese

3 tablespoons berry jam (flavor of choice)

Cream butter, sugar, cream cheese and jam together with an electric mixer until smooth. Using a melon baller, form 1-inch balls of butter mixture and arrange them on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Freeze until solid, at least two hours.


1 cup flour

3 tablespoons powdered sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 cup chilled club soda (plus up to 1/4 cup additional if batter is too thick)

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Fold chilled club soda into dry mixture. Do not overmix; batter will be slightly lumpy and thick.

Heat 3 1/2 cups peanut oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, to 350 F.

Working with frozen butter balls, skewer frozen balls one at a time and dip in batter. Place battered butter ball in hot oil and remove skewer, using a second skewer to dislodge. Fry for 30 to 45 seconds and turn with slotted spoon. Allow battered butter to fry for an additional 30 to 45 seconds or until lightly browned.

Remove fried butter balls from oil with slotted spoon and cool on a rack for at least 1 minute. (I know it will be hard to wait.) Skewer and eat, State-Fair style. Careful, contents of fried butter will remain hot.


Garlic Fried Butter: Omit sugar and jam from butter center; add 1 tablespoon garlic powder. Omit sugar from batter.

Plain Fried Butter: Omit jam from butter center.


  1. Oh My My Fried Butter I have heard people talk about that but thought there was no way it was for real.. I can not imagine eating fried butter...
    Fried Oreos, ok... maybe... or Fried Twinkies...
    I will admit that I love a good fried Pickle....
    ok. no more fried in grease I can feel my arteries clogging just from typing about fried butter.
    Take Care

  2. Where did you find that? OMG! Sounds so , well greasy!

  3. Hey Now! YOu're supposed to be an enouragement to us "Curves" girls and keep temptation away, (like with your HOley Donuts!) How's that for a "plug"? Anyway, Just wanted to tell you I couldn't bring myself to get up at 5am if I wanted to. I've done that twice in my life and that was just because I worked the 6-2 shift as a waitress (many years ago)! Now, if I ever get up that early it's for 2 reasons a trip to Temple to the VA hospital, or to go fishing (which I haven't done in a while. I admire you for doing it though! I must tell you. Don (my hubby) says I've traded one addiction for another! I went from the livingroom-TV, to the bedroom-computer! See ya later!

  4. Holy MOLY! Now Ive seen fried bacon and I thought that was the ultimate in fried fat but I was so so wrong... THIS is the wrongest of the wrong.

    I can't even believe this, I mean I believe it...But I can't believe it.

    wow. Just wow. And why?

  5. I haven't heard of this...our fair starts tomorrow around here... so 'if' we go--I'll have to check it out.

  6. Wow that is very disturbing!

  7. Ok,that sounds absolutely heavenly!
    Should it be served with an angioplasty?


Yippee! You came to talk to me. Thanks.
You know how special that makes me feel?
Like I swallowed the moon and the stars and I just shine now!
