Homemade Corn Dogs

Found on Bakingdom...LOVE this site!

Makes 8 to 10 corn dogs and about 1 dozen corn puppies


1 cup yellow corn meal or corn flour
1 cup all-purpose flour (we used GF of course!)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 to 1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 egg
3/4 to 1 cup milk
1 to 2 tablespoons honey or agave
8 to 10 hot dogs

Preheat oil to 375 degrees in a large pot on stove. Preheat oven to lowest setting (around 175 degrees). Line a wire cooling rack or baking sheet with clean paper towels and place it in the oven.

In a medium bowl, combine the corn meal (or flour), all-purpose flour, salt, pepper, sugar, and baking powder. Make a well in the center and add the egg, milk, and honey. Mix until thoroughly combined, adding more milk, as needed.

Dry hot dogs off by rolling them on clean paper towel. Place a couple of dogs in the prepared batter and use a fork, chopstick, or your clean hands to roll it around and get it coated. Fry the corn dogs for 3 to 5 minutes, until deep golden brown. Place the dogs in the preheated oven on the prepared rack or pan. Once all of the dogs are cooked, serve immediately.

To make corn puppies: Using a table- or soup spoon, drop excess batter into the hot oil and fry for about 4 minutes, until deep golden brown. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.

***Sooooo good! I don't eat hot dogs very often, but being GF has pretty much meant no corn dogs, which is a bummer! These turned out great, our whole family at them, and no one knew they were GF. We used corn meal, and really liked the texture. Although it sounds intimidating, these were super easy to make!***
