Making corn dogs at home is a fun and festive thing to do for parties! Better than the frozen corndogs you buy at the store and almost as easy!


Cornmeal 1 Cup (16 tbs)
All purpose flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
Baking soda 1/4 Teaspoon
Cream style corn 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Shortening/Peanut oil 3 Cup (48 tbs) (For deep frying))
Finely grated onion 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Buttermilk 1 Cup (16 tbs) (plus a teeny bit more if needed)
Cornstarch 4 Tablespoon (for dredging)
Hot dogs 14



1.Combine dry ingredients in a big bowl (not including cornstarch).

2.Whisk together wet ingredients (not including frying oil).

3.Add wet to dry and stir to combine. Set aside for 10 minutes while your oil heats up to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

4.Meanwhile, skewer hot dogs and roll in cornstarch to lightly coat.

5.When your oil is hot, batter up your hot dogs (now is when you should add a little more buttermilk if it seems too thick to dip into) and fry for about 2 minutes until brown and crunchy and theyll be lumpy, too, so just be ready to love them for their imperfections.

6.Drain on paper for a minute and then eat with your favorite combination of mustard, cock sauce, ketchup, or whatever.


7.Serve and enjoy.


Dip these in tartar sauce for a preposterously good bite. And if you have hotdogs leftover after your party, try these Sonoran Hotdogs!
