~Deep Fried Tequila Shots!

 

 

Oh NO~ I think I did it again, I birthed a recipe that will make even my closest family and friends question my sanity {yet again}…I hate when that happens..haha!  Just when they think that I’ve come to my senses with a nice casserole, or low-key brunch dish..I go and do something like this!  I really can’t blame them..I mean, you know it’s bad when you find yourself questioning your own sanity!  :)

Oh well..everyone loves to make a fuss, but in reality these little tipsy tequila nuggets of fun were gone in a matter of minutes!  Those shocked people even had the nerve, the audacity, the giblets to ask me to make more..lol!

I really don’t know how to describe theses one of a kind treats, other than maybe.. try to envision a sweet and subtle tequila flavor all suspended inside a soaked until moist, melt in your mouth bite of sweet cake that tastes like funnel cake…that’s what these are like!

I had some fun with the presentation by dipping some shot glasses into frosting and rolling it around in Lime zest!  Just to keep with the theme, and add a touch more flavor and fun!  But you can totally just pile these up on the table and watch them disappear…FAST!  Make a bunch for the next game..you’ll see!

PS…you can use ANY liquor/liquid you like…it’s ALL good!

What you’ll need:

Sponge Cake/Angel Food Cake..I used store bought…here’s why >> Scroll down to the “Fallen Angel” fail..click HERE!

Tequila

Oil for frying ..I used Canola

Powdered Sugar..for dusting

The frosted rim:

Just dip it into some frosting, and into some Lime Zest…that’s it!  YUM!

Directions:

Just cube up the Angel Food Cake into small squares..that can pop into your mouth!

Dip it quickly into the tequila (keep in mind, the more you dip..the stronger they will be)

Now gently place them into a 350 degree pot of 2″ Oil.

Fry them up until they’re golden on all sides…

Let them cool on some paper towel.  Then make up your shot glasses if you’d like!

A nice sprinkle of Powdered Sugar drives them all the way home!  Start passing them around…EVERYONE will be waiting right there!

Grab some for you!  ~Enjoy! :)  CHEERS!

  1. First off let me say these look yummy, but doesn’t frying burn off the alcohol from the tequila? if so then why? please reply.

    • I’m sure some of the alcohol cooks off..however, depending on how much you “dip” them…the kick was totally there. :)

    • Alcohol boils at 173 degrees, These things will not reach that temperature internally before they are golden brown on the edge. Also, any alcohol vapor may just re-saturate previously unsaturated portions of the spongecake.

      • I made them, let them cool about an hour and then put them in a container for a few hours. They got soft. They tasted ok, couldn’t taste the tequila even though I soaked them through and through in tequila. I’m hoping they only got soft cuz they were still a little warm and the steam maybe got them soft. They taste way better crispy. I didn’t really make enough for anyone to feel a buzz.

        • There’s actually a reason why you can’t taste the alcohol! That’s because the boiling point of ethanol is 78 centigrade. Since it’s not 100% ethanol, that means that the boiling point is thus lowered and broadened to maybe 75-76 centigrade. Since the recipe calls for cooking them at 350F (178 centigrade), then the alcohol will volatilize and become vapor, thus leaving into the atmosphere. I would fry them and then let cool to below 78C and then inject them with the tequila

          • Actually the temp of the oil is 350, that’s not what the inside of the cake gets up to. Turning down the oil temp is going to make oil soaked balls of mush, 350 is perfect. If you want them to keep, freeze them on a tray until hard then pop them in a container & keep them in the freezer. They will thaw out quickly or you could just eat them frozen.

  7. Looks like it’s time for me to make another batch of strawberry infused tequila to try this out!

  14. Me: Good evening occifer
    Officer: Have you been drinking this evening?
    Me: Nope…

  15. One thing you can do is dredge them in flour after soaking them in tequila. It burns off less of the alcohol and it crisps up faster.

  16. I own a bar and grill and always looking for fun things! I just tried these using pound cake and soaked them in Marshmallow Vodka. I made two size cubes, one larger and one as shown. You can taste more booze in the bigger one of course but you get a mushy inside which isnt that bad, in my opinion, since you have the crispy outside. I dont know how many you’d have to eat to get “drunk” but since it’s only 2 in the afternoon and I have a long shift ahead of me, I can’t eat enough to find out but I can tell you after 2-3, I’m feeling the affects, no drunk, not buzzed but as if I’d had one shot. The pound cake does crumble a bit and I’m thinking the angel food cake is probably the better option but it was what available. Cant wait to try other versions of this. Thanks for sharing!!

  17. This is going to be perfect for New Years treats! I think I’ll try three or four different types of booze and have a ‘Sweet Snack Shots’ dessert buffet, a la Amy!Thanks Amy ;)

  18. What an awesome idea!!! How far in advance do you think you could make these? Could I make them in the morning and serve them later in the afternoon and still have all the marvelous deliciousness?

    Reply
    • They should be fine for a few hours or so..you can always ‘freshen’ them up in a low oven! :)
