“Make your own corn dogs just like at the fair with this rich buttermilk corn batter.” - by ROBY
Original recipe yields 20 corndogs
- Heat oil in a deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
- In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in melted bacon drippings. Make a well in the center, and pour in the egg, buttermilk, and baking soda. Mix until everything is smooth and well blended.
- Pat the hot dogs dry with paper towels so that the batter will stick. Insert wooden sticks into the ends. Dip the hot dogs in the batter one at a time, shaking off the excess. Deep fry a few at a time in the hot oil until they are as brown as you like them. Drain on paper towels or serve on paper plates.

"Absolutely fantastic! I never rate a recipe without doing it exactly as written. The instructions missed the bacon fat which was in the ingredient list (I remembered to include it). It was very goo..." See mored - a thick, melt-in-your mouth, hot dog "tempura!" In my second batch, I replaced the corn meal with crushed Onion Flavored Sun Chips, reduced the salt by half, and added 1 tsp paprika and 1/2 tsp onion powder. The sugar in the recipe cooks the batter very fast, so I used room-temperature hot dogs before dipping it into the batter. An A.B. TIP: Put batter into a glass for easier dipping. The resulting flavors were exciting and surprising! When deep frying, they didn't want to flip to cook the other side, so I weighed them down with a perforated disk. So wonderful! Perfect shape, texture and taste. TRY THIS, FOLKS!"
"I had been searching for a homemade recipe and found this!! Took the advice on using a tall glass to dip in!! Great tip! I also tried cutting the hot dogs in half for a bite sized treat! Also, I ha..." See mored the oven on a low 200 F to keep the dogs warm until served..."
