I’m on my first full day of camping today. We camp near Lake Tahoe each year and when I was a kid, one of the best parts of the trip was to drive in to Lake Tahoe for the afternoon, do a little shopping, and have lunch at Carlos Murphy’s. My favorite thing on their menu? Deep Fried Ice Cream.
When I invited Laura from Our House of Joyful Noise to do a guest post, I immediately knew I needed her to share her Deep Fried Ice Cream recipe and tutorial. It’s like this was just meant to be….
Deep Fried Ice Cream
1 cup crushed cornflakes
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar
2 eggs, beaten
*Oil (for frying)
(We used Vegetable Oil, but wondered if we should have been using Canola.)
Chocolate syrup, or honey, or fresh strawberries, and whipped cream (optional)
I definitely want to give this a try at home, especially since Carlos Murphy’s is no longer in Lake Tahoe… Boo. Please go visit Our House of Joyful Noise for more recipes, plus crafts, things for your home and tips on homeschooling (for you people out there who are brave and patient enough to try that sort of thing.)

Um yeah, shopping and fried ice cream would be my favorite part of camping too! I’m thinking I need to come camping with you, because our camping trips include smelly fish and dirt and bugs, NOT shopping. Ahem.
We don’t have a deep fryer, but now I want one! 🙂 Fried ice cream at home sounds delicious, albeit a little messy 😉
I am originally from the deep South – lots of deep fried food there (: I have never eaten fried ice cream though – may have to try this sometime. Great tutorial Laura and Viv – hope u have great trip!

I LOVE fried ice-cream…It used to be my favorite part of gone to the local sit down Chinese once a year for my birthday growing.
I did make it once yrs ago, maybe it is time to try again.
Enjoy your trip.

Time warp of flavor memories! I used to go to Carlos Murphy’s as a teen and order the potato skins and have deep fried Ice Cream for dessert. Yum! Also, did you know today was National Ice Cream day? How appropriate! Definitely trying this out. Thanks for sharing.
I made some like this a couple months ago! SO good! 🙂
Fried ice cream is one of my favorite things…it’s why I cried when Chi Chi’s closed 🙁
