Homemade corn dogs?

nooodles | Aug 1, 2005 10:21 PM

I know, it's gross. But I never eat processed "meat," and once every two years I need a corn dog. For lack of a Hot Dog on a Stick in San Francisco, I thought I'd make my own.

Has anyone done this at home in a cast iron skillet? I've copied the ingredient list for the batter and would love tips and suggestions.

My biggest question is: is it safe to deep fry popsickle sticks? I know at the store they have little clamps that suspend the hot dogs in a vat of oil. If I cook these in a cast iron skillet do I just put the whole thing in? Will it burn the wood to a crisp? Thanks!

1 cup milk
2 medium eggs
1/4 cup oil
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/3 cups corn meal
2/3 cup flour
1 to 1-1/2 pounds hot dogs
flour for dusting (about 1/2 cup)
