How Do You Like Your Soda?: Deep-Fried Coca-Cola

July 18, 2018

Okay. Before you make any assumptions on how this Deep Fried Coca-Cola was formed, let me tell you how this dish works: we made our own cola syrup (without using actual Coke!) and drizzled this sticky concoction on top of some freshly deep-fried funnel cakes. It’s the perfect solution for a sweet-tooth craving for a quick sugar fix.

With the holidays creeping around the corner, it won’t be long til the Yuletide settles in. This gives you license to indulge in devilish desserts. I think we should all start now by whipping up a batch of these sugar-filled treats. You’ll be up way past your bedtime, and hopefully, you’ll remember to save some for Santa.

Deep-Fried Coca-Cola

Total Time: 45 minutes / Yield: 5-6 servings

Ingredients for the Cola Syrup

  • 1 1/2 tbsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 3 slices ginger
  • 1 petal star anise
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 bark cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Oil for deep frying

Procedure for the Cola Syrup

  1. Boil together all ingredients until syrupy, for about 20 minutes.
  2. Set aside, but make sure to keep warm to prevent the cola from solidifying.

Procedure for the Funnel Cake

  1. Heat oil in a 3 inch deep pan. While waiting for the oil, make the batter.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together dry ingredients and set aside. Whisk together egg and coke in another bowl.
  3. Make a well in the middle of the flour and pour egg coke mixture.
  4. Mix until smooth, about 1 minute.
  5. Pour in a squeeze bottle with a big hole or in a piping bag.
  6. When oil is medium hot, swirl the batter around.
  7. Fry for 1-2 minutes on both sides or until golden brown.
  8. Drain on paper towels.
  9. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
  10. Serve with cola syrup.

    I once saw on Eat St a food truck who literally served deep fried coke. They mixed in the coke with the batter then fried it. Haha. 🙂
