Shopping List:

1 1 /2 cups yellow cornmeal

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons sugar

1 1 /2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 3/4 cup buttermilk

4 large eggs, beaten lightly

8 hot dogs

3 Quarts peanut or Vegetable Oil


1. Place a wire rack inside a rimmed baking sheet.  Whisk the cornmeal, 1 cup flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and cayenne pepper together in a  bowl.  Next whisk in the buttermilk and eggs until well blended.  Place the remaining 1/2 cup flour in  a shallow dish.  Dredge the hot dogs in this flour and shake off the excess.  Thread the  hot dogs lengthwise onto 8  8 inch skewers.

2.  Add oil to a large Dutch oven until it measures at least 2 inches deep and heat over medium-high heat to 350 degrees.  Stir the batter to remix and transfer half to a tall drinking glass.  Working with one at a time, dip the hot dog into the glass and swirl it around to coat it, allowing excess to drip back into the glass.  Place the corn dog in the hot oil.  Repeat quickly with 3 more hot dogs.  Fry the corn dogs, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 4-6 minutes.  Transfer to the wire rack.  Return oil to 350 degrees and repeat until all hot  dogs are cooked.  Serve with mustard and ketchup.
