Homemade Corn Dogs

When I was a kid, the closest public swimming pool was about 30 minutes away from our house. We loved to go there to swim, BBQ by the creek and we especially loved to order the corn dogs there. I THINK I got this recipe from my grandma(I've had it SO long I'm not sure). I'm not sure if she got it from the people at the pool, but we have always claimed they are the same. Maybe there is someone in my family that reads this blog and can correct me, if I'm wrong:)

I used some of this batter to make some onion rings and they were fantastic too.

Unfortunately this is NOT a pretty picture! These little babies were getting snatched up faster than than I could cook them, so I finally just took a quick picture of them while they were draining on the paper towel.

Corn Dogs


  • 3/4 cup complete pancake flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup corn meal(I used white corn meal)
  • 3/4 cup milk(I used a little more ~1 cup)
  • hot dogs, we use Ball Park All Beef Franks
  • sticks

Directions: Stir all ingredients together and let sit for 20 minutes. Batter should be consistency of cake batter. Pat hot dogs dry, this is important or the batter will come off when it hits the hot oil. Put sticks in hot dogs(I didn't use), coat with batter and deep fry until golden brown.

Pin It!


  1. I'm pretty sure you got it from Grandma and it was from the pool. If my memory serves me right one of the older boys ask for the recipe and they gave it to them. Thanks for posting since I ask you for the recipe and then never called back to write it down.

  2. They look delicious. Can you believe I have never eaten a corn dog before.

  3. Corn dogs do not need to look pretty...just delicious! And those do!


THANKS for visiting!!
