Bite into heavenly goodness with our simple and minimal version of the corn dog. Our corn dog recipe guarantees a satisfied tummy in every crunch.

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 30 mins


  • 3 cups Pancake mix
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 whole egg, beaten
  • 10 oz soda water, cold
  • 4 pieces hot dogs, jumbo
  • Canola oil, for frying, with extra if needed
  • Tomato ketchup & mustard sauces


  1. Combine flour and cornmeal into your large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.

  2. Gradually add your beaten eggs and water, until it forms a smooth batter.

  3. Transfer the batter in a chilled area, covered and allow it to rest for at least an hour.

  4. Heat about three inches of canola oil in a deep saucepan to about 375 degrees F.

  5. While your oil is warming to frying temperature, begin skewering your hot dogs with skewer sticks. Insert sticks about ⅔ of the way into each hotdog.

  6. Get a tall glass and pour in your batter. This makes it easier to coat your hot dogs.

  7. Dunk each hot dog into the batter and then carefully drop each into the hot oil. Allow the batter to coat the entire hotdogs and drip any excess batter.

  8. Let cook for about two to three minutes or until the outside is a deep golden brown color.

  9. Repeat this process for the remaining hot dogs.

  10. Use your tong to get your hot dogs off the deep saucepan. Make sure to strain out the remaining oils before serving.

  11. Serve warm with ketchup and mustard dipping sauces.

Recipe Notes

This easy-to-make recipe is made in different variants. If you've mastered this recipe to your liking, you can even choose to make your own pancake mix from scratch. 

Cornmeal is used to add texture to our Hot Dog On A Stick. If ever it's not available, it's fine to make this recipe without it. If you want a thicker consistency with your batter, adjust the amount of water in your mix. You'd want to avoid a watery consistency with your batter since it won't stick well to your hot dogs.

  • This recipe is perfect, but it makes enough batter for about 30 hot dogs! If you’re really only making 8, cut it way down. Reply
