It is spring break! Time to eat all things fun and delicious like these homemade corndogs. They are fairly easy to make and pretty quick once you get that oil at the right temperature.
Food on a stick is so much fun and the kids love it! These corn dogs are so crispy on the outside but soft and a little sweet on the inside. We all gather around the kitchen island and ate them like they were going out of style.
What you need to make Homemade Corndogs
Turkey or beef franks
Oil for frying
Helpful Tips and Tricks
Make sure you let the batter rest for at least five minutes. This is going to help to thicken and make it fluffy.
Patting the hot dogs dry will make the batter stick to the hotdogs so much better. It is an extra step, but it is worth taking it. I also help myself with a little spatula to roll the corndogs around and keep their shape once they hit the hot oil.
In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt) In a bigger bowl whisk the wet ingredients. (Egg, buttermilk, and milk) Combine dry ingredients into wet ingredients and whisk until smooth.
Por the batter into a tall drinking glass (I used a 25oz). Let the batter rest until you heat up the frying oil.
In a large pot or Dutch oven pour about 3” of oil. Heat the oil on medium high heat until it reaches 350 degrees. To taste if the oil is hot enough, drop a tiny dollop of the batter in the oil and if it immediately sizzles and comes to the top, it means the oil is perfect.
Pat the hotdogs dry with paper towels and carefully insert the wooden skewers.
Dip the corndog straight down into the batter and twirl around to fully coat the hotdog. Gently place the corn dog into the hot oil and cook until golden brown turning it every couple of minutes making sure it browns evenly.
Place the corndogs on a plate lined with paper towels to drain the excess of oil.
Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
