The only thing better than a regular corn dog is one fried in pancake batter. It's the perfect combination of juiciness, sweetness, and crunchiness. Aside from its tastiness, the recipe is super simple to make and easy on your wallet.
Pour oil into the pan and preheat to 365 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine pancake mix, cornmeal and salt. Mix well.
Add milk, mixing well while you pour.
Using a fork, dip each hot dog into the batter until it's coated evenly.
Fry each one until golden brown, making sure to rotate evenly.
If desired, insert a popsicle stick into each corn dog. Serve immediately.
The batter will thicken after a few minutes of sitting, so add a little bit of milk to thin it out.
Oil tends to splash when heated, so be sure you're not standing too close to the frying pan.
