Yes, this is a real thing
Okay. So. Somebody went ahead and made a deep fried version of Starbucks’ beloved (yet rather divisive) pumpkin spice latte. Now, you’re probably thinking something like, Ugh, what, why? or Ew, that sounds gross or Seriously with this pumpkin thing? Can you not?
Those are all very reasonable initial reactions, but before you go any further, please take a look at this culinary creation and tell me it doesn’t look incredibly appetizing:
Food blogger Amy Erickson of Oh, Bite It came up with the idea for these deep fried PSL bites after creating something similar with Guinness and tequila shots. To create these treats, Erickson suggests using store-bought angel food cake or poundcake. (She used poundcake because it holds more flavor.) Then you basically just soak them in a pumpkin spice latte, fry them and sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar. Dipping them in whipped cream is optional, but probably a good idea to achieve maximum deliciousness.
