Homemade Corn Dogs


1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour / plain flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups buttermilk (regular milk works too)
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon honey
1 (10 count) package Hot Dogs
10 wooden skewers or chopsticks
2 Quarts Vegetable Oil, for frying

*In a medium or large pot, add the oil.
*Turn heat to medium and heat oil to 350 degrees F.
*In a large bowl, add the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. *Stir together.
*Then add the beaten egg, buttermilk, oil and honey.
*Stir until combined. (Batter should be a little thicker than pancake batter)
*Remove hot dogs from package.
*Wipe them all dry with a paper towel (this will help the batter stick to them better)
*Insert one skewer or wooden stick into each hot dog.
*Pour the batter into a tall drinking glass.
*Holding by the skewer, take one hot dog and dunk it into the batter, coating all of the hot dog.
*Slowly remove from batter and let a little excess batter drip back into the cup.
*Immediately place it into the hot oil, while still holding the stick.
*Turn as necessary to brown all sides.
*Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until all sides are a deep golden brown.
*Remove from hot oil and place on paper towels to drain grease.
*Repeat with all hot dogs.
