  2. Homemade Corn Dogs
    Makes 10 Corn Dogs

    1 cup yellow cornmeal
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 Tablespoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 egg, beaten
    1 1/2 cups buttermilk (regular milk works too)
    1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 Tablespoon honey
    1 (10 count) package Hot Dogs
    10 wooden skewers or chopsticks

    2 Quarts Vegetable Oil, for frying

    Directions: In a medium or large pot, add the oil. Turn heat to medium and heat oil to 350 degrees F.

    In a large bowl, add the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir together. Then add the beaten egg, buttermilk, oil and honey. Stir until combined. (Batter should be a little thicker than pancake batter)

    Remove hot dogs from package. Wipe them all dry with a paper towel (this will help the batter stick to them better) Insert one skewer or wooden stick into each hot dog.

    Pour the batter into a tall drinking glass. Holding by the skewer, take one hot dog and dunk it into the batter, coating all of the hot dog. Slowly remove from batter and let a little excess batter drip back into the cup. Immediately place it into the hot oil, while still holding the stick. Turn as necessary to brown all sides. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until all sides are a deep golden brown. Remove from hot oil and place on paper towels to drain grease. Repeat with all hot dogs.

  6. OMG!!! Thank you so much for this recipe, my kids love corndog’s and they are very expensive, a box of 16 corndog’s its about $8.00 dollars and I always need 2-3 boxes cuz I have 10 kids…. So you know what I mean lol . Thank you so much.

  7. If you lightly dredge the hot dogs in flour before dipping into the batter, the batter will stick better…:)

  8. Frying ANY natural, healthy, organic food in vegetable oil turns it into an unhealthy food. Once you heat the vegetable oil, it becomes highly unstable and a trans-fat in your body. Use refined, organic coconut oil instead.

  9. I have lots of food allergies. and have had to make my own recipes. Did this yrs. ago. You can always adjust the recipe. Freda Medina
