Traditional Homemade Corn Dogs

  • 3/4 Cup cornmeal
  • 3/4 Cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2/3 Cup milk
  • 8 wooden sticks
  • 8 hot dogs
  • Oil for deep fat frying
Using a tall measuring cup or glass will make it easier to dip your hot dog into the mixture and coat the hot dog. If it is easier you can mix it in a bowl and then pour the batter into a tall container. You can also cut your hot dogs in half and it will be easier to coat the whole hot dog and you will easily have a mini corn dog recipe.

Combine cornmeal, flour and egg. Blend together until mixed well. Slowly stir in milk until your batter thickens. Let stand a few minutes while you heat up the oil in a frying pan or deep fat fryer. Heat oil to 375 degrees.

Dip hot dog in batter coating all sides some batter may drip down that is okay too. Fry until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel.

Any leftover batter can be fried for eating, these are called hush puppies.
