 These Hand Dipped Corn Dogs are covered with a thick cornbread coating and fried to golden brown perfection. It’s just like they make them on Main Street at Disneyland’s Little Red Wagon.

  • 1 quart Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 8 hot dogs
  • Popsicle or craft sticks


  • In a large pot, heat vegetable oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • In a mixing bowl, stir together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use a whisk to beat in the egg, milk, and melted butter.
  • Insert the popsicle or craft sticks into each hot dog leaving enough of the stick showing to create a handle. Pat each hot dog dry with a paper towel.
  • Transfer batter to a tall drinking glass for easy dipping. Dip each hot dog into the batter, covering the hot dog completely. After dipping, put immediately into the hot oil to fry.
  • Fry each dog until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per corndog. Put on paper towels to drain.
