Butter On A Stick

Deep fried butter: it may not be the healthiest food on the planet, but surprisingly, it sells incredibly well at county and state fairs. You wouldn’t think a fried stick of fat would be so loved, but it is.


I mean, if you are a fan of deep fried butter, I can’t say I blame you. I had it once at Disneyland when I was little, and as appalled as my mother was that my grandfather bought it for me, I loved it.

Now, I may not indulge in a whole stick of butter by myself, but I’d definitely share it. I can still remember how delicious it was, and unfortunately, a lot of places don’t sell it anymore.

So whether you’re craving this treat, your county fair doesn’t sell it but you want to try it, or you want to prank someone by telling them it’s a corndog, here’s how to make your own fried butter.

You will need:

  • a stick of butter
  • pancake mix (either homemade or the mix)
  • cinnamon
  • honey
  • oil for frying
  • milk
  • powdered sugar
  • vanilla

Fry The Butter

Start by freezing your butter to get it cold and firm enough for frying. Preheat your oil in a deep fryer to about 360 degrees F.

Mix up your pancake mix, adding cinnamon and honey. Pour it into a tall glass, then poke a skewer through the stick of butter, dip it in the mix, and deep fry it.

In the meantime, you can make a glaze with powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla to drizzle on top of the finished fried butter.

If that’s not your style, a plain drizzling of powdered sugar will do. Either way, you’re done and ready to serve!

No matter how you feel about this dish, you’ll definitely be surprised by how delicious it is. Enjoy!
