Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 hot dogs
  • all purpose flour for rolling
  • vegetable or peanut oil for frying

Instructions

  • Preheat the fryer to 350 degrees F.
  • To make the batter, whisk to combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, and nutmeg.
  • In another small bowl, whisk to combine the buttermilk and eggs, and mix this into the dry ingredients until there are no more streaks of flour, but be sure to leave lumps in the batter (do not stir those out, as you may overmix). Transfer the batter to a tall glass.
  • Skewer the hot dogs onto wooden sticks and roll the hot dogs in enough flour to coat, then shake the excess off.
  • Dip the floured hot dogs into the tall cup of batter and put them straight into the fryer for about 3 minutes, but be sure not to overcrowd your fryer. Depending on size, you might need to make two or three batches. The corn dogs are ready when the exterior is golden brown.
  • Serve the corn dogs with ketchup and mustard if desired, and enjoy!
