ISO Recipe for Corn Dogs

Does anyone have a recipe for making the batter for corn dogs? Also wondering if you can use a pancake type batter for making them. Thanks

Stinker,
I don't have a recipe at hand, but will look and see what I can fine. I do believe the batter is made from a fine or med grind cornmeal.

As far as Corn Dog recipies I found this linked in another corn dog post. The post recommended the "Pronto Pups" version (46 reviews and 5 stars when I looked.)

There's also the Good Eats: Man Food version from Food Network.

I'm going to try a sort of fusion between the two.

Right now the plan is to keep equal portions of corn meal and flour, and use buttermilk as in the Good Eats version, and use sugar and an egg as in the Pups version. Measurements and results to follow.
1 + 1/3 cups Corn meal (mine was self-rising)
1 + 1/3 cups Flour (All purpose)
2 tsp. Baking Powder (double acting)
1/4 tsp. Baking Soda.
1/3 cup Sugar
1 whole Egg
2 cups Buttermilk (produces a thick coating, use more liquid for thinner coating)

Pat dry Hot-dogs (or whatever) with a paper towel (or whatever) and roll in corn starch till lightly coated. Dip in batter and deep fry for about 3 minutes.


I used "bun-length" smoked sausages cut into thirds (small countertop electric fryer... it would just barely fit a whole hotdog on it's side, and won't immerse one vertically), dipped in batter and dropped in the fryer (no sticks). Gotta keep an eye on them cause they tend to float with one side up. Just knock it around until it either floats the other way up for a while or till evenly golden brown.

This recipe is not as sweet as some I've had (considering adding a tablespoon or three of honey to the mix) but I found it good nonetheless.

I tried my first corndog last year. I enjoyed it but tried the frozen variety at home. Not so good, not so bad.

Well, in THAT case, I'd use the Marie Callender's corn bread mix, the one with the jalopy peppers in it!

John I don't think there is a "Corndog" police out there that requires them to be sweet. Just tradition maybe? A weiner covered in a cornbread (like) batter and deep fried. Ya might wanna try a small sausage covered with a pancake batter. I never have but the idea is interesting. A cornbread batter sans sugar with chili powder etc. could make for an interesting savory rendition.

Have fun & Enjoy
