A Weekend at the Fair {at home} Part 2 - Corn Dogs

This weekend, we're doing 2 classic fair foods at home.  If you missed yesterday's recipe for Funnel Cakes, you know you want to go back & get it 'cus you can't do the fair without them.

You also can't do the fair without corn dogs.

Yum, right?  

They may seem like an unapproachable food to make at home, but they really aren't.  They are super easy to whip up.

  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (plus a little extra for sprinkling)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup white sugar (can sub. honey if you want)
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 (16oz) packages of hot dogs (I like beef, use what you like)
  • 16 wooden skewers


In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, salt, sugar, & baking powder.  Stir in eggs & milk.  Refrigerate the batter for at least 30 minutes to get it cold.

Preheat your oil in a deep saucepan. Using a paper towel, dry off each frankfurter, making sure there is no moisture left.  Place a skewer in the end of each hot dog.

Pour some of the batter into a tall drinking glass.  Dip each hot dog into the glass of batter, and then place into the hot oil.  

Fry 2 or 3 corn dogs at a time until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.  Drain on paper towels.

Serve with mustard, or other condiments of your choice.
