Yes, you read that right, folks. Deep-fried cupcakes. Two trends collide, and while we haven't tasted the results, we can guarantee this is not the next Reese's Peanut Butter Cup you're looking at.
Still, we had to share, because frankly, it takes a lot to suprise us these days, jaded as we are here at Chow Bella. We adore the super-cute Seattle-based Cakespy blog -- and props to Jessie Oleson for turning an obsession into a cottage industry.
Oleson writes a weekly column for Serious Eats, which is where we found her recipe for deep-fried cupcakes. Because no, this is not a treat you buy at the fair. You actually fry them up at home. If you dare.
The mind boggles -- rather, sizzles and pops then flatlines into a sugar coma. Let us know if you are brave enough to try the recipe.
