Author: Mrs Happy Homemaker


  • 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.
