Baking Success Or Baking Mess


1/2 cup Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
½ teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon Fleischmann's® Baking Powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour divided
1 cup club soda, chilled
1 large Vidalia onion sliced 1/2" thick rings
As needed, enough for deep frying Mazola® Canola, Corn OR Vegetable Oil


Preheat deep fryer to 375°F, or if using a large

Dutch oven pot, fill 2-3” deep with oil, use a deep-fry thermometer and preheat

to 375°F.

Place ½ cup of flour in a bowl, add the sliced,

separated onion rings and toss to dust in flour. In another large bowl mix together the

corn starch, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cayenne pepper. Add in the

club soda and whisk until smooth.

Working in batches, dip your dusted

onion rings into the batter, allow excess to drip off before carefully lowering

into the hot oil. Working in batches,

deep-fry the rings for 2 to 3 minutes, turning over halfway, until golden

brown. Remove to paper towels to drain. Season with salt if desired and serve
