Disney Homemade Corndogs are something that make every situation better. What a fun week we had this past ‘Spring Break’! Since we are quarantined and couldn’t go out of town, we have had SO much fun with this ‘Around the World’ activities I blogged about last week. Some days we did more than others to ‘explore’ the country, and other days we just made food from that country and called it good. Either way, it’s been a fun way to make each day a little more exciting and less mundane 😉 If you want any of the FREE DOWNLOADS, here they are for you!
Here are some of our highlights from the places we visited 😉
We hope your travels ‘Around the World’ are equally as wonderful and you are all staying safe and healthy.
DISNEY HOMEMADE CORN DOGS
- ¾ cup flour
- ½ cup cornmeal
- 1 Tbs. baking powder
- 1 tsp. Salt
- ¼ tsp. Baking soda
- ¼ tsp. Cayenne pepper
- 1 egg
- 3 Tbs. sugar
- ¾ cup milk
- 6 beef franks
- 4 Tbs. cornstarch for dredging hot dogs
- Skewer sticks and oil for frying
- Pour your oil in a cast iron skillet, dutch oven, or deep fryer. Heat over medium-high heat until your thermometer reads 375F. Test the oil by putting a drop of the batter in the oil. When it rises to the top, it is ready.
- In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, yellow corn meal, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cayenne. In a large bowl whisk the one egg and whole milk. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients all at once, mixing until just combined. The mixture will look a lot like pancake mix. Don’t over-mix and let it rest for 10 minutes. Note: I found it easiest to transfer the mixture to a skinnier cup. While your batter is resting, lay your cornstarch on a baking sheet or big plate. Place each hot dog on a skewer and roll in the cornstarch, being sure to pat off any excess. Then quickly dip the hot dog in and out of the batter. Immediately place the corn dog in the hot oil. Be careful! The oil will be hot and may splash back at you. Cook until the coating is golden brown, 4-5 minutes. Remove with tongs and place on paper towels for draining.
