Homemade Corndogs


I can remember growing up and when my mom would heat some corn dogs up in the microwave and it would be like the best meal ever! I loved it! I went to the store and was completely grossed out by what some of the commercially prepared corn dogs contained.

So what does Mommy decide to do? Bake her own! I Googled home made corn dogs and found corn dogs are basically corn bread surrounding a hot dog! Now I know it took me 30 years to figure this out, but in all fairness I haven't even given corn dogs a chance as an adult, so I never really thought about what they were really made from.

I came across this site called The Vegan Lunch Box. It was exactly what I was looking for plus I already had a Twinkie pan for baking yummy treats for my children! Inspired, I baked some of these up and they were a real hit!


1¼ cup all purpose whole wheat flour
1¼ cup fine ground organic cornmeal
2 teaspoons non-aluminum baking powder
1½ cup almong milksoy milk
2 T oil


Preheat oven to 400 F. grease twinkie pan lightly. Put dry ingredients in one bowl, and mix them. Put oil and milkmilk together, combine and mix just until moist. Pour your homemade corn dog mix to cover the bottom of the cup with batter, set a (slightly trimmed) veggie dog in the middle, then covered it with more batter.

I baked them at 375ยบ for 25 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.

Serve with organic ketchup!

You could always get crazy and buy some wooden coffee stirring sticks and insert them in the middle after they have cooled a bit. I will be doing this when my boys are older as my 2 YO took his out immediately and used it as a little sword and knife to play with his food. :-)
