Honey Corn Dogs.........

It's summer and honey corn dogs come to mind. You can find them at most any country fair. But....you can also make them at home. They are not that hard to make.
Honey Corn Dogs
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp. honey
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 tsp. vegetable oil
12 hot dogs
12 wooden skewers, candy sticks or thin popsicle sticks
2 quarts vegetable oil, for frying
In a Dutch-oven, heat the 2 quarts of oil to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add the egg, honey, buttermilk and vegetable oil, stir until combined. Let sit for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, pat the hot dogs dry and insert a skewer into each hot dog. Pour the batter into a quart mason jar and dip one dog at a time into the batter, then place into the hot oil to fry . Make sure the coating touches just  a bit of the stick so that the coating stays on). Cook for about 2-3 minutes (you want to make sure they're fully cooked inside), then transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Repeat with remaining hot dogsYield: 12 corn dogs You can freeze these and to reheat, bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minute.
Note: If you dust the hot dog lightly with flour (shake off any excess), the batter will stick better.
Till next time.........
