Alternative Corn Dogs

Last Summer when we were down in England on Holiday, we went to a restaurant called "Ribs and Bibs" ... To say it was amazing is an understatement.

The food is American Smokehouse style and its all very authentic. While we were there M seen "Corn Dogs" on the menu and was desperate to give them a try. We ordered a plate and we all fell in love.

It was such a simple snack ... A Hot dog on a stick, covered in a batter then fried. Delicious!

I wanted to make them for us at home but it proved difficult to find a UK style recipe.

Why do I say UK style? Well you see the original recipe for corn dogs used "Cornmeal" ... VERY different to what we have in supermarkets here with a similar name "Cornflour".

Then I found a recipe that suggested making the corn dogs with Pancake batter and I was sold.

The recipe is simple and it take about 10 minutes all in to cook.

You'll need
Bamboo skewers
A jar of large hot dogs
4oz self raising flour
1 oz caster sugar
1 egg
4 tbsp. milk

To make
Pre-heat the your chip pan or heat up some oil in a pan.

Soak the bamboo skewers in water for a few minutes then slide through the hot dogs. You may wish to half the hot dogs to make them more manageable to cook.

*I tried the first one as a full size dog but it didn't quite fit in my chip pan so I halved them. Made it easier for M to eat too*

Mix up the batter ingredients and coat each hot dog in the mix.

Place the hot dogs carefully into the oil and fry, turning to even out the cooking (the hot dogs rise to the top browning one side

Serve on their own or with ketchup and/or mustard. Simple.
