Homemade Corn Dogs Recipe


The greatest honey batter may be found in this homemade Corn Dog Recipe. They’re perfectly fried, with a crunchy exterior and a soft cornmeal interior to keep the sausage juicy.

Prep Time: 18 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


For the Corn Dogs:

  • 12 hot dogs
  • 12 sticks
  • Oil for frying (Peanut, canola, or vegetable )
  • Ketchup and mustard to serve

Batter Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups yellow corn meal
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp honey



  1. In a big saucepan, pour 2-3″ of oil and heat to 350°F over medium heat.
  2. Using paper towels, pat dry. Hot dogs should be stuffed with sticks.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl (corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt). Combine the wet ingredients in a mixing bowl (buttermilk, egg, 1 Tbsp oil, and honey). To combine the wet and dry components, whisk them together.
  4. Dip hot dogs in batter that has been poured close to the top of a drinking glass. Place the corndogs in the batter and twirl them around to properly coat them, then pick them up and swirl again. Allow any excess to trickle away.
  5. Hold corn dogs in the heated oil at an angle for 5-7 seconds to allow them to seal, then drop them in (this keeps them from sticking to the bottom of the pot).
  6. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Cook up to 2-3 at a time, flipping as needed to ensure equal browning. Allow cooling on a wire rack.
