How to make Corn Dogs (American Hot Dogs in batter)

Surely Corn Dogs are familiar to you , those battered and fried American hot dogs that are usually eaten at fairs. They are made with a batter made from cornmeal, and are usually skewered on a wooden skewer to make them easier to coat and also to eat with your hands.

They are a simple recipe that we can put at any informal dinner or at a children’s birthday as a snack.

American Corn Dogs Recipe


  • 1 package of frankfurters
  • 1/2 cup of cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup plain wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

How to make Cornmeal Battered Hot Dogs

  • To make these Corn Dogs easier to handle, the first thing we do is cut the sausages in half.
  • Insert a wooden skewer stick into each sausage.

Corn batter for the Corn Dogs

  • In a large bowl, mix the corn flour, the wheat flour, the sugar, the yeast or baking powder, and the salt.
  • In a cup, mix the egg and milk.
  • Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients, and beat with a spoon or spatula until well blended.

How to fry corn dogs

  • Add oil to a large skillet and heat oil over medium-high heat.
  • Dip each sausage in the cornmeal mixture, until completely covered. To make it easier we can put the mixture in a tall glass.
  • We put the sausage dipped in the dough in the pan. Check out more recipes on at Pet Pooja.
  • Fry until golden and crispy, about 3 minutes, then transfer to a paper towel lined plate to remove excess oil.

We serve the corn dogs immediately accompanied by mustard, homemade ketchup ,  guacamole , or our favorite sauces.
