Can you mix up a boxed cake mix recipe and then drop it into the hot oil of a deep fryer to make some form of dessert?

AVeryTiredMomma, You can... that is how funnel cakes are made.
Heat oil in deep fryer to 370° F.
Holding the funnel with one finger keeping the opening closed, fill with batter.
Open the end of the funnel and allow batter to run out in a stream into deep hot fat, moving funnel from center, swirling outward in a circular pattern.
Fry for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer fried funnel cakes to paper towels to drain. Shake sifted confectioners' sugar over drained funnel cakes.
My aunt also used to use cake batter as a batter when frying things, like snickers bars or twinkies.
