Like the real deal, except they're totally allergen free! These corn dogs are absolutely delicious! They're a fun, simple, and a much healthier option than those heavily processed corn dogs from fast food vendors or the store. Whether its real meat or a vegan alternative is up to you!
Yields: ~3 full sized corn dogs, 12 mini
To save oil, make mini corn dogs instead, as these only take a couple inches of oil to fry!
To ensure that the batter will stick to each hot dog/veggie dog, pat each one dry before dipping them in batter.
When you're ready to fry your corn dogs, make sure you have everything you'll need in reach. You won't want to leave your oil unattended.
The consistency of your batter will depend on the kind of corn flour/masa you use. If it is too thick to dip each hot dog into, add more milk a little bit at a time (we're talking in teaspoons). Too thin of a batter will coat each corn dog very thinly. If it appears too thin, add more corn flour.
3 regular sized hot dogs/veggie dogs
1/4 cup masa (corn flour, not meal)
1 tbsp gluten free Measure for Measure/all purpose flour
1 tsp ground flax with 3 tsps warm water
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/2 tbsp canola/veg oil + more for frying
1/4 cup plant milk
1/2 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt
A tall/wide enough pot for frying the length of each corn dog
Tongs for removing each corn dog from the oil
A tall narrow jar for coating each hot dog in the batter
A food thermometer
In a small bowl, combine your dry ingredients
Stir in the wet ingredients
Pour the batter into a narrow and tall jar (that is at least the height of one hot dog).
Remove 3 hot dogs from their packaging and pat each of them dry. This will help the batter stick. Skewer each one about 3/4 the way.
Heat enough oil in your pot to submerge each corn dog. Heat it to 360 degrees Fahrenheit.
When your oil is about ready, dip a skewered hot dog into the batter to fully coat it. Once your oil is at the desired temperature, submerge the corn dog in the oil and let fry for ~2 minutes, or until golden brown.
Repeat with the remaining hot dogs/batter and enjoy!
