  • Add in beaten egg, buttermilk, and melted butter. Whisk until fully combined and all of the dry ingredients are hydrated.
  • Transfer mixture to tall glass to make dipping the corn dogs easier.
  • Pat every hot dog dry, it's essential to get all of the moisture off of the hot dog in order for the batter to stick.
  • Skewer each hot dog, and push the stick about 4/5 of the way up the hot dog, try to keep the skewer in the middle of the dog.
  • Dip your hot dogs into the batter and twist to coat.
  • Remove the hod dog from the batter and hold above the cup allowing the excess batter to drip off, it should take about 20 seconds. Batter them one at a time and place directly into the oil.
  • When your oil is to temperature, fry each corn dog 3-4 minutes, rotating to ensure all sides brown evenly. You can fry 2-3 dogs at a time, just don't overcrowd your pan as it will cause the oil's temperature to drop rapidly.
  • Once corn dogs are cooked, place on a wire drying rack and allow to cool slightly.
  • Top with your favorite corn dog toppings and enjoy!


If you don't have buttermilk, use 1 cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of white vingar. Combine the two, allow the mixture to sit five minutes and use that in place of the buttermilk.
