Homemade Corn Dogs
If you like corn dogs,
you are going to love this recipe.
Not only are these corn dogs delicious,
they aren’t as intimidating to make as you might think.
The batter comes together quickly and
I think the batter is what makes the corn dogs so special.
They taste exactly like the corn dogs your get at the fair.
Homemade Corn Dogs are best served with ketchup and mustard.
Corn Dogs are a carnival and fair classic.
Who hasn’t had a corn dog at the carnival,
state fair or at the ball park.
Funnel Cakes might be considered the
“Queen of the Fair” but
Corn Dogs are considered the
“King of the Fair”
1 (10 count) package
hot dogs of your choice
1 1/2 cups
1 1/4 cups
1 1/2 cups
10 wooden sticks
vegetable for frying
- In a large bowl whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the beaten egg, buttermilk, oil and honey. Stir until combined. Batter will be thick.
- Remove hot dogs from package. Wipe all of the hot dogs with paper towels. (This will allow the batter to adhere to the hot dogs) Insert one wooden stick into each hot dog.
- Pour the batter into a tall drinking glass. Holding by the wooden stick, 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 glass. Immediately place into hot oil. Turn as necessary to brown all sides. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until all sides are deep golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
Not only are Funnel Cakes and
Corn Dogs a hit at the fair,
so is just about anything and
everything that is served on a stick.
