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.)
