Transcript:How to Make Deep-Fried Corn DogsHi I'm Gina Miller with About.com food and today I'm making a carnival and State Fair treat – Deep Fried Corn Dogs. This recipe is from the About.com Southern food site.
Ingredients for Deep Fried Corn DogsHere are the ingredients you'll need:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- oil or shortening for deep frying
- 1 pound of hot dogs
- and wooden skewers
Instructions for Making Deep Fried Corn DogsIn a mixing bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt and chili powder. In another bowl, beat the eggs with milk and 1/4 cup of oil.Stir egg and milk mixture into dry ingredients and whisk together until batter is smooth. Heat oil in the deep fryer to 360°. Insert a wooden skewer or popsicle stick into each hot dog, to make a "handle" for the hot dogs. Holding the stick or skewer, dip each hot dog into batter, turning to coat thoroughly and evenly. Fry corn dogs in 2 or 3 batches, for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown.Drain on paper towels or heavy brown paper.
Tips for Making Deep Fried Corn DogsHere's a tip: If you have younger children, simply cut the hot dogs in several pieces, dip them into the batter and deep fry. This way you won't have to worry about the sharp skewer. So don't wait for the State Fair, you can enjoy deep fried corn dogs and corn dog bites anytime.
