Red Hot Velvet Rings

Hey fiery food fans. Today’s recipe has a bit of a misleading title.

I’m calling this post “Red Hot Velvet Rings” but the end result isn’t stunningly hot. Or even red in appearance.

What it is is a hotter, more savoury take on red velvet onion rings – An old craze that I still find baffling.

But just because coating onion rings in something as sweet as actual cake batter seems strange to me doesn’t stop the thought of a smooth, milky, fluffy, cake-like texture surrounding a ring with a little bit of bite left from making me salivate.

The feel of cake-battered onion rings was so tempting I just had to try it and, with the shade produced by deep frying red food colouring already making the originals look spicy, I knew it had to be a blog recipe.

So I went out and bought myself some sriracha to experiment.
