I decided to try my hand at making corn dogs last Friday, as Fridays are usually my "easy" cooking days. The recipe was super easy, and the kiddos really loved thew corn dogs! My only complaint was that you have to eat them right away, I had to put them in the microwave to wait for the tator tots to get done, and they got a little soggy. But all in all, a great recipe, and it's nice to know all the ingredients that went into making them.
Homemade Corn Dogs
1 quart oil for deep frying
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 pounds hot dogs (I used Hebrew National hot dogs)
Heat oil in a deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center, and pour in the egg, buttermilk, and baking soda. Mix until everything is smooth and well blended.
Pat the hot dogs dry with paper towels so that the batter will stick. Insert wooden sticks into the ends. Dip the hot dogs in the batter one at a time, shaking off the excess. Deep fry a few at a time in the hot oil until they are as brown as you like them. Drain on paper towels or serve on paper plates. Enjoy!
