Full recipe below by Chez Chanelle


For the Corn Dogs:

For the batter:

  • 1 ¼ cup fine yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 1 medium egg
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp vegetable or olive oil


  1. Pour 2-3 inches of oil into a large pot or dutch oven and heat to 350˚F over medium heat.
  2. Pat the wieners thoroughly dry with paper towels and insert sticks into hot dogs.
  3. Whisk together dry ingredients (cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt) and set aside.
  4.  Whisk together wet ingredients (buttermilk, egg, 1 Tbsp oil and honey).
  5. Combine wet and dry ingredients and whisk to combine.
  6. Pour the batter into a drinking glass almost to the top and dip the wieners in one by one. Put the corndog straight down into the batter and give it a little twirl to fully coat the wiener then swirl as you lift. Let excess drip off.
  7. Hold corn dog at an angle in the hot oil for 5-7 seconds to let it seal then drop into oil (this keeps them from sticking to the bottom of the pot).
  8. Fry for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Fry up to 2-3 at a time (you don’t drop the temperature), turning them as needed to brown evenly. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  9. Allow to cool slightly then serve with ketchup and mustard.
