      I was so excited to try corndogs after finding a fry baby at a garage sale for .25. I loved the taste and well never buy a frozen corndog package again. My biggest challenge was getting the batter to stick to the hot dog. There were small spots of no batter, but that was fine for our family needs. I didn't use sticks, with a toddler I didn't want her chocking herself (she's 2). I couldn't wait for them to be done to try and I was not disappointed.

      Thanks for this recipe! Much better than the premade varieties. My kids loved them. I used wooden craft sticks (popsicle sticks) and inserted them after frying because I did not want the sticks to get oily...of course, I had to let them cool a bit first :)

      This was very easy to make. The only changes I made were to leave out the dry mustard and shortening. I poured the batter into a tall glass and dipped the franks in. Easy! Be sure to follow step 12 and turn the corn dogs after 10 seconds. That helps to keep them from flattening out. I will definitly make this again and again.
