Corn Dogs

As promised here's the corn dog recipe. They were surprisingly easy to make and tasted incredible. We had them as a starter and then had burger and chips! Although it was way too much food and we didn't eat half of it all...which I guess is a bonus as it means more burgers today...

Happy Eating

  • Ingredients - 

    vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • 150g cornmeal or polenta
  • 125g plain flour
  • 40g sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 225ml full-fat milk
  • 12-15 frankfurter sausages
  • 12-15 wooden skewers, soaked

    Method - 

    1. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep-fat fryer to 160C (a bread crumb should go brown in about 30 seconds) or as I did in a shallow based pan, it worked well and you don't have to use as much oil!
    2. Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and milk together and gradually stir the mixture into to the dry ingredients. Whisk together to make a heavy batter.
    3. Put a skewer through each frankfurter sausage and dip it into the batter until well coated.
    4. Place the frankfurters into the oil, a few at a time, and cook for three minutes, or until golden-brown. Drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper.
    5. To serve, mix the mustard and mayonnaise together in a bowl and serve with the frankfurters.
