    To make corn dog batter, in a large bowl combine all dry ingredients. Whisk in egg and milk until all combined. Add up to a 1/4 cup more milk if needed to thin out. Pour batter into a tall glass to make coating the hotdogs easier.

    Fill a large saucepan halfway with oil, being careful not to overfill. Heat oil to 350°F on the stovetop.

  • 5

    Place a popsicle stick through the middle of the hotdog lengthwise. Coat hotdogs in batter by dipping into the glass and turning the stick to evenly coat. Carefully lower the corndog into the oil and deep fry until golden brown in batches, taking care not to overfill the pan. Serve with your favorite condiments and enjoy!
