Simple Corn Dogs

DSC_0003

Corn dogs!!! Deep breathe!!! How yum would that be!!! Awesome!!!
And yes, it is yuuuum, it’s easy and oh so moreish!

I tried this recipe this morning for my daughter to take to school for pj day and she requested it for dinner too.

For school I used viennas, for dinner -sausages and seekh kebabs.

All deliciously, super, yum, yum! I think this will also be a great treat /snack /savoury. We mums are always looking for new ideas – you know, school parties, birthday parties, something to take over to a function.

The dough has a hint of sweetness, soft and a great alternative to using a roll!

Here’s what you will need:

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1 cup milk
vegetable oil for frying

In a bowl:
Combine cornmeal, flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Stir in eggs and milk.

Preheat oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Insert wooden skewers into dogs.

Roll dogs in batter until well coated. Fry 2 or 3 corn dogs at a time until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Notes:

– I made mention of dogs – I.e: sausages, seekh kebabs, viennas, etc.

– I used a small deep pan, filled 3/4 way up with oil.

– the batter must be thick, but if you feel it’s too thick, add tad bit of milk.

– Make sure your viennas, sausages, etc are wiped dry or the batter will fall off.

– Yellow cornmeal (polenta) is not commonly found in supermarkets, you can find this product at your local Food Lover’s Market.

– These corn dogs do not absorb the oil.
