Homemade Corn Dogs

When you think back to the foods that you used to eat during your childhood what comes to mind? Pizza? Rice Krispie Squares? Baked Beans & Hot Dogs?

For me one of my favourite childhood foods were corn dogs! Even as an adult, these are still a delicious treat that I always look forward to when my town's fall fair comes around. I know that you can buy these at most grocery stores, but nothing is as good as homemade, so I thought I'd share an easy recipe for homemade corn dogs with you!

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup white sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
1 1/8 cups milk
1 quart vegetable oil for frying
2 (16 oz) packages beef hot dogs
16 wooden skewers

In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, white sugar and baking powder.

Add milk and egg to the bowl and whisk well.

Heat oil in a large pot on stovetop until it reaches 350 degrees F.

While oil is heating, insert wooden skewers into hot dogs.

Dip/roll skewered hot dog into batter until completely covered.

Cooking 2-3 corn dogs at a time, cook in oil until golden brown in color, about 3 minutes. Set on paper towels once cooked to drain off any excess oil.

Now serve & enjoy with your favourite condiments!

Take Care,
