Homemade Corn Dogs

Homemade Corn Dogs – it is a kind of alternative to the traditional hot dog with some differences in the recipe and method of preparation. Corn-dog is a sausage, strung on a stick and baked in a dough made of cornmeal in deep fat or a special professional apparatus.


  • Whole wheat flour
    100 g
  • Corn flour
    100 g
  • Sugar
    3 tbsp
  • Paprika
    1 tbsp
  • Baking soda
    1,5 tsp
  • Baking powder
    1 tsp
  • Salt
    0,5 tsp
  • Egg
    1 pcs
  • Milk
    2 tbsp
  • Sausage
    6 pcs
  • Sunflower oil
    300 ml


  • 1. First you need to mix the dry ingredients. And what I tell say – corn flour is necessary here, it gives the right taste. If you cannot find it, try polenta, it is more common.
  • 2. Mix well the dry ingredients, add the egg and gradually pour in the milk. The dough should be very thick, adjust the consistency with milk or flour.
  • 3. String sausages on skewers. It is necessary to roll them in flour, so that they better hold the dough on them. It is very important.
  • 4. Now, the trick, you need to pour the dough into the narrowest and tallest vessel. Cocktail glasses or some small vases are very suitable. This is necessary to freely lower the sausages and the dough should be enough for them all. Pour the oil into the frying pan (about 2 cm) and warm it well. Then lower the sausage completely into the dough and carefully take out, slightly scrolling the skewer. It is to ensure that the dough does not have clumps, but envelops the sausage.
  • 5. Now fry the sausages (I did one by one) in oil. Here again the secret: to make the duster smooth and round, you need to constantly turn the sausage in oil, especially during the first minutes. Put, see that the dough hardly grasped – turn them at that moment on the other side and so on a circle if there are corners of the dough (in fact the bottom of the frying pan is flat), gently iron them with a spatula.
  • 6. The clay should turn golden. Do not overdo it, but do not leave it too light – the dough inside will be damp. Like all dishes in oil – ready-made corn-dogs should be dried on paper towels.
