Delicious and easy to make Homemade Corn Dogs! They taste just like the ones from the fair. These yummy corn dogs are a family-favorite!
There is a litte town about 20 minutes from where I live called Veyo. They have a popular pool there that is nestled and surrounded by trees and rocks. I have so many fun memories playing and swimming there as a kid. We would catch crawdads that crawl around outside the pool, play at the arcade and have a blast swimming. They also serve amazing food! They are known for their to-die-for corn dogs!
I crave their corn dogs every now and then so I decided it was time to try making some at home. They turned out so unbelievably delicious! I don’t own a deep fryer, so I just used a medium pot to deep-fry the corn dogs in. Although it seems a little intimidating, they were really easy to make.
My kids loved them and my Hubby inhaled three! I ate one, but dreamed about eating five…
I will be making these again soon, without a doubt. 🙂

Homemade Corn Dogs
Delicious homemade corn dogs! They taste just like the ones from the fair. These are a family-favorite!
- 1½ cups yellow cornmeal
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1½ cups buttermilk (regular milk works too)
- 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- 1 (10 count) package Hot Dogs
- 10 wooden skewers or chopsticks
- 2 Quarts Vegetable Oil, for frying
- In a medium or large pot, add the oil. Turn heat to medium and heat oil to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, add the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir together. Then add the beaten egg, buttermilk, oil and honey. Stir until combined. (Batter should be a little thicker than pancake batter)
- Remove hot dogs from package. Wipe them all dry with a paper towel (this will help the batter stick to them better) Insert one skewer or wooden stick into each hot dog.
- Pour the batter into a tall drinking glass. Holding by the skewer, take one hot dog and dunk it into the batter, coating all of the hot dog. Slowly remove from batter and let a little excess batter drip back into the cup. Immediately place it into the hot oil, while still holding the stick. Turn as necessary to brown all sides. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until all sides are a deep golden brown. Remove from hot oil and place on paper towels to drain grease. Repeat with all hot dogs.
