Deep Fried Pepsi

Deep Fried Pepsi? Come on guys, is this for real? Just happen to found it on Google trends, and it seems people are interested knowing what Deep Fried Pepsi is.

Well, according to this website 4Hoteliers deep fried pepsi is..

Arguably the best was still to come. Delicate house made gelatos were offered with...deep fried Pepsi! Sounds odd, but if you make a classic pate au choux, using Pepsi in lieu of water, the resulting batter when fried will have the texture of a beignet with the flavor of Pepsi. Dusted with powdered sugar.

Deep Fried Pepsi

Should feed: 4

1 ¼ cups Pepsi
¾ cup W hole butter, unsalted
½ tsp Salt
1 ½ cups Flour
6 Whole eggs

How to do it:
1. Place Pepsi and butter in tall sided sauce pot. Bring to a boil.

2. Add the salt and the flour all at once time, beating together over medium heat until the mixture pulls away from the sides of the pot smoothly

3. Transfer to an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, beating in the eggs added one at a time, adding each one only after the last has been incorporated. Batter should be stiff enough to hold stiff peaks.

4. Place the batter into a piping bag or small bowl.

5. Heat 4" oil for frying (peanut oil works the best, but Canola is also satisfactory), in a high sided pot or deep fryer to 360F.

6. CAREFULLY drop ½"x 2" lengths or small quenelles (oblong balls) into the hot oil. Fry until a deep gold brown. Generally, the dough will be fully cooked 3-4 minutes after having risen to the surface of the oil.

7. Scoop out the cooked Pepsi, draining excess oil, dust liberally with powdered sugar and serve as is, or make it a fried Pepsi Float with the addition of ice cream!
