  • The batter should be about the consistency of heavy cream. If too thin add a little flour.
  • If too thick add a little water to the Batter For Sweet Treats.
  • If  Veggie Batter is too thick add pickle juice or water until the correct consistency is reached.
  • Place battering stick in item prior to freezing or refrigerating item.
  • Freeze cake and cookie type items before battering to ensure they stay on the stick.
  • Freeze Twinkies overnight to ensure cream will still be in there after frying.
  • Refrigerate candy bars overnight, but do not freeze.
  • Dust cake items (i.e.. Twinkies) in flour prior to coating with batter.
  • To ensure the best flavor, do not eat the fried item for at least two minutes.
  • Stir batter prior to using. Keep batter refrigerated when not in use. The batter should last a couple of days when refrigerated.
  • If you want a thicker coating on vegetables dust them in flour prior to coating them with the batter.
  • Make sure the oil is 350 to 360 degrees.
  • Don't overload your fryer or the temperature of the oil will drop.
  • Can use the Veggie Batter as a dry or wet batter for fish and chicken.
  • For an out of this world strawberry shortcake, cover your fried Twinkie with strawberries and whip cream.
