Ordinary cheesecake has an entirely different flavor and texture than deep-fried cheesecake. I know a few people that will eat them even if they don’t like cheesecake since they taste different.
It has a unique feel that is similar to a warm cream puff that is on another level. These cheesecake bites have the ideal crunchy top and are very creamy on the inside.

How to make Deep-Fried Cheesecake
For the detailed ingredients list with directions, scroll down to the bottom of the article.
Step 1: Add 3–4 inches of canola or other vegetable frying oil to a big dutch oven or heavy bottom pot and heat to 375F. Using a candy thermometer is the easiest way to ensure the temperature is what you want.
Step 2: In a mixing bowl, combine the pancake mix, milk, vegetable oil, and eggs.
Step 3: Whisk till the majority of the lumps have disappeared. The batter shouldn’t run off your cheesecake bite since the mixture must be thick enough to coat it. If somehow the batter is too thin, add more mixture. Observe the batter for five minutes.
Step 4: To make the cheesecake’s middle into a square, trim the cheesecake’s outer edge.
Step 5: Cut the cheesecake into twelve equally sized squares.
Step 6: Cover with batter by dipping a cheesecake piece with your hands into the bowl. Coat entirely. Let extra batter trickle off.
Step 7: Place the cheesecake into the heated oil carefully for a deep fry. To obtain an even, deep golden brown on all sides of the cheesecake, flip it periodically using a slotted spoon.
Step 8: Take out the cheesecake bites and place them on a wire rack coated in paper towels to remove extra oil. Do the same with the remaining cheesecake pieces.
Step 9: Sprinkle the cheesecake pieces with powdered sugar.
Step 10: Let it cool for five to ten minutes. Serve to your family, friends, or to yourself. 🙂
