10 corn dogs
Made famous by the Little Red Wagon food truck, these hand dipped Disneyland corn dogs are iconic for a reason. With a light, puffy breading flavored with a hint of sweetness and fried to a perfect golden brown, you'll be surprised how easy they are to make at home!
‣ 1 cup cornmeal ‣ 1 cup all-purpose flour ‣ 2 tablespoon granulated sugar ‣ 2 teaspoon baking powder ‣ 1/2 teaspoon salt ‣ 1 cup buttermilk, plus up to 1-3 tablespoon more for consistency ‣ 1 egg ‣ 2 tablespoon honey ‣ 2 quart vegetable oil, divided ‣ 10 hot dogs ‣ 10 wooden sticks
Make a creamy batter by mixing cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, buttermilk, an egg, honey, and vegetable oil.
Thread hot dogs on sturdy wooden sticks, leaving enough room for a handle at the bottom.
Dip the corn dogs in the batter, coating them all the way to the stick. I’ve found it’s easier (and way less messy) to pour the batter in a drinking glass and then dip the hot dog inside. This way you get a nice even coating of batter without getting any on your fingers.
Drop the hot dog into a large, wide skillet full of hot oil. Let the hot dogs cook until golden brown and puffy. Once ready, use some tongs to transfer the corn dogs to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and cool slightly.
