DELICIOUS DEEP FRIED DOUGHNUT DELIGHTS!
My daughter’s fifth birthday was coming up, and as she was growing up, she was quite an independent little lady.
She heard me talking about the planning of her party, and she wanted in on the action. I was talking about ordering her a cake from the local bakery when she piped up and said that she didn’t want a cake. “Well alright then little lady, what is it that you want?” She said she wanted pancakes and ice cream for her snack. Ummm…. hmmmmm ….. that was different.
Thanks to the world wide web, I knew that there had to be something out there that someone had made before that was going to fit the bill.
I couldn’t wait to make these because I wanted to be sure they were going to turn out. I enlisted my sassy little sweetie as the taste tester and she loved them. They got her seal of approval for the party. We had a winner!

These were a huge hit at my daughter’s birthday party, and they have been great ever since. I don’t always wait for a special occasion anymore. Sometimes the special occasion is Friday night and I want one. The kids just love them, and I love to make them special treats once in a while. When we have them at night, I usually make them into sundaes just so that we can have the yummy ice cream along with them. I have also served these at brunch and breakfast time too. Pretty sweet, but oh so good!
These can be served at any time of the day and they are always a huge hit.
1 c Bisquick pancake mix
1/3 c milk
1 large egg
1/3 c strawberry preserves
1/2 c dried strawberries
1/4 c white chocolate chips
1/2 tsp cinnamon
CREAM CHEESE DIPPING SAUCE
4 oz Philadelphia cream cheese
2 1/2 Tbsp butter (room temp)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c powdered sugar
1 pt vanilla ice cream
1 can(s) Cool Whip whipped cream
1 pkg frozen strawberries in syrup (thawed)
Beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until well-mixed, light and fluffy.
Beat in powered sugar until the right consistency and sweetness that you like. If frosting is too thick for you, you can add a tablespoon of milk in at a time until it reaches the consistency you want.
Preheat oil in deep fryer to 325 degrees.
Combine pancake mix, cinnamon, milk and egg in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed.
Mix the jam and strawberries together with the white chocolate chips.
Add to the batter and mix just until blended in. Set the batter aside for a few minutes.
When your oil is hot drop by cookie scoop or a large tablespoon into the oil. If you dip your scooper in the oil first your batter won’t stick to it. Cook for 2 ½ to 3 minutes or until the batter is dark brown. You can fry around six balls of batter at a time, but first test the cooking time using one ball so that you can make sure the dough is cooking all the way through.
Remove fried batter balls to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar …
