Corn Dog Muffins

I love corn dogs. It is difficult to get the right taste these days. I found a recipe for corn dog batter that tastes almost as good as corn dogs from the county fair. Now, instead of deep frying, these are baked in the oven. Yum! with a dip of yellow mustard on most bites......

 Here is the recipe
Oven to 450 degrees
Pampered Chef Stone muffin pan if you have one, other wise a 12 cup muffin tin will work
Pour about 1/2 to 1 tbsp oil in each muffin cup
heat in oven while oven is preheating.

While oven is heating, combine in your batter bowl:
1 cup self rising flour*
2/3 cup self rising corn meal mix*
1/4 cup sugar (I used about 2 tbsp less)
1 egg
1 1/4 cup milk
stir together

From your pre-heated muffin pan, cautiously pour excess oil into batter and stir. Please be careful oil and pan are HOT!!!!
Next, take 3 hot dogs cut into thirds
Place 1 tbsp batter in each cup
place hot dog piece on top of batter
equally place remainder of batter over each hot dog
Bake until golden brown.

Enjoy with a dollop of mustard!

If you had rather, you can deep fry your corn dogs. The following is the recipe from All here is the link to that site:

  • 1 quart oil for deep frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons bacon drippings
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 pounds hot dogs
  • wooden sticks
  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in melted bacon drippings. Make a well in the center, and pour in the egg, buttermilk, and baking soda. Mix until everything is smooth and well blended.
  1. Pat the hot dogs dry with paper towels so that the batter will stick. Insert wooden sticks into the ends. Dip the hot dogs in the batter one at a time, shaking off the excess. Deep fry a few at a time in the hot oil until they are as brown as you like them. Drain on paper towels or serve on paper plates.

*I used self rising *White Lily Unbleached Flour and *White Lily Cornmeal Mix and omitted the baking soda baking powder and salt. I also used 2% milk instead of buttermilk.
