Corn Dogs

I would like a good batter recipe for corn dogs (like at the state fairs)

Here’s a recipe that was previously posted by b-man.

Corn Dogs

1 lb. hot dogs
4 cups vegetable oil
½ cup flour
½ cup cornmeal
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. vegetable shortening
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
8−10 wooden skewers

Bring 3 cups of water to boiling in a large saucepan. Add hot dogs and bring back to boiling. Remove from heat; cover 20 minutes.

Pour enough oil to a 2−inch depth in a skillet and heat to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a medium−sized bowl and blend with fork. Add shortening and cut in with fork until the size of small peas.

Combine milk and egg in a 1-cup measure. Stir into flour-cornmeal mixture. Pour mixture into a tall glass.

Remove hot dogs from water and dry with paper towels. Insert skewer into the hot dog, and be sure to leave about 1 inch for handle. Dip hot dog into batter; let excess batter drip into glass. Drop into hot fat fry 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
