Recipes: Fried Coke!


  • 1 1/2 cups Coca Cola, plus 1/3 cup for fritters
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 quarts canola oil for frying
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Bisquick mix
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting surface
  • 4 maraschino cherries


  1. In a small saucepan heat 1 1/2 cups of Coca Cola over medium high heat until it reduces to just 1/2 a cup of cola concentrate, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. While coke is reducing, whip cream and granulated sugar in a stand mixer or by hand until stiff peaks are formed. Combine confectioner's sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl and set aside.

  2. Heat oil to 360°F in a large Dutch oven and adjust flame to maintain temperature. While oil is heating prepare the fritter batter.

  3. In a large bowl whisk together remaining 1/3 cup of Coca Cola with vanilla. Stir in Bisquick to form a sticky dough. Sprinkle surface of dough with flour until a pliant and less sticky dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured surface. Flatten the dough into a large square about 1/2' thick and cut into 3/4' square pieces. Roll each square into a little ball.

  4. One at a time, place the balls in a shallow heat-resistant strainer then carefully transfer to the hot oil, cooking no more than 4 at a time. Fry for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden on the bottom. Then using heat resistant strainer or tongs, carefully turn fritters and fry until golden brown on second side, about 1 minute longer. Use strainer to remove fritters from hot oil. Transfer to a paper towel lined wire cooling rack. Repeat, cooking in batches, until all the dough balls have been fried.

  5. Toss fritters in cinnamon sugar. Divide the fritters among four low ball glasses, drizzle fritters with Coke concentrate then top with whipped cream and a cherry. Serve immediately.
