For the Corn Dog Batter:

  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

For Assembling:

  • 8 hot dogs (your choice of meat or plant-based)
  • 8 wooden skewers or popsicle sticks
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


Preparing the Hot Dogs:

  1. Insert a wooden skewer or popsicle stick into each hot dog, leaving about 2 inches of the stick exposed. This will serve as the handle for your corn dogs.

Making the Corn Dog Batter:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the yellow cornmeal, all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and then add the milk and vegetable oil. Mix well.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth and well combined.

Coating the Hot Dogs:

  1. Pour the batter into a tall drinking glass or a narrow, deep bowl for easier dipping.
  2. Dip each hot dog into the cornmeal batter, rotating it to ensure even coating. The batter should stick to the hot dog, creating a thick layer.

Frying the Corn Dogs:

  1. In a deep saucepan or deep fryer, heat about 3 inches of vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Carefully place the coated hot dogs into the hot oil, a few at a time. Be cautious not to overcrowd the pot.
  3. Fry the corn dogs for about 3-4 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy. Use tongs to turn them occasionally for even cooking.
  4. Once done, remove the corn dogs from the hot oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.


  1. Serve your Super Easy Homemade Corn Dogs while they’re still hot and crispy.

Variations and Tips

  • Mini Corn Dogs: Cut the hot dogs into smaller pieces to make mini corn dogs, perfect for parties or appetizers.
  • Cheese-Stuffed: Insert a thin strip of cheese into the hot dogs before dipping them in the batter for an extra gooey surprise.
  • Spicy Twist: Add a pinch of cayenne pepper or paprika to the batter for a touch of heat.
  • Gluten-Free Option: Use a gluten-free flour blend and gluten-free cornmeal to make these corn dogs gluten-free.
  • Baked Corn Dogs: If you prefer a healthier alternative, you can bake the corn dogs in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for about 15-20 minutes, or until they’re golden brown.
  • Dipping Sauces: Serve your corn dogs with ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce, or a homemade honey mustard dipping sauce for extra flavor.
  • Storage: Leftover corn dogs can be refrigerated and reheated in the oven or microwave.


Super Easy Homemade Corn Dogs are a delightful twist on a classic fair food favorite.
