Homemade Corn dogs

  • There are a few American food items that I had almost given up finding in England...Corn dogs, jimmy dean sausage, ice cream sandwiches and caffeine free regular coke...
  • Finally after 14 years of living away from America (and corn dogs), I bought a deep fat fryer fit for purpose.  I have managed to make corn dogs twice now and thought I would share my recipe for any others out there wanting to take the homemade corn dog plunge. 
  • Depending on the size of your fryer you need at least 4 or more litres of vegetable oil. I put the dogs in 2 at a time and they take less than 5 minutes each. I used the highest setting and that seemed to work best.
  • This was the mixture I made..
  • 150g cornmeal ( Asda and Tesco usually carry this)
  • 125g plain flour
  • 50gz granulated sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 225ml milk
  • 10 hot dogs ( frankfurters ) 
  • 10 kebab skewers
To serve
  • French's American Mustard 

    Second time around I made gluten-free ones...they were crispier than the 1st batch but still tasty.
