Homemade Corn Dogs

These are really nice for a corndog.  They are actually less greasy then the store bought ones and taste so much better.  They have a nice crunchy cornmeal texture on the outside and soft on the inside.

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 quart vegetable oil for frying
1-2 packages hot dogs (We cut ours in half to make mini's)
16 wooden skewers (optional)

Precook hotdogs in boiling water for a few minutes until heated through.
1.In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, sugar and baking powder. Stir in eggs and milk. Pour into a glass jar for easier coating. 

2.Preheat oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat to about 365 degrees. Insert wooden skewers into hot dogs if using. Roll hot dogs in, flour first then dip in batter until well coated and dip into batter.

3.Fry 2 or 3 corn dogs at a time until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.  Dip in homemade fry sauce, ketchup or bbq.
