I always need a quick, easy dessert recipe on hand since my baking skills are subpar. Growing up in New Jersey, fried Oreos have always been a boardwalk staple, but I thought they’d be too complicated for a simple dessert. That is, until I realized I could just use pancake batter as the batter for the Oreos. I’m sure the pros use something a little more homemade, but this recipe is honestly delicious.
Bisquick ‘shake and pour’ pancake mix
1 1/2 cups olive oil
Powdered sugar (optional)
Make pancake mix according to package instructions. (If it’s the shake and pour kind, you should just need to add water.) Heat oil to 350. (I used a small pot for deeper oil). Then, dip Oreos into pancake batter. Place in oil two at a time. Fry until golden brown, about 1 minute; flip to fry other side if necessary. Dust with powdered sugar and serve.
