I recently found this recipe at all recipes.com and was excited and pleased to see it Ive been searching for a good corn dog recipe for years. Then I Tried it what a dissapointment! the recipe calls for corn flour and local stores dont sell it (unless they sell it by some other name) so that could be the reason for the poor results. The corn Dogs we made from this recipe were tasteless and the texture was heavy and tough. Read More

I thought this recipe was going to be good come on "county fair" quality - it was not. I found the batter to be too thick and when it fried it was too hard. I had corn flour in my cupboard I had it for something else so I used it but the amount is so miniscule that I don't even think it would be missed. I will not keep this recipe. Read More

I used namaste gluten free baking flour mix and it still turned out pretty tasty! I think you can use any gluten free baking flour mix that you have on hand and it will turn out pretty good. Read More

I made these in order to take a picture and it bordered on disaster. The batter was too thick so I thinned it - then the batter was not sticking - so I let it sit to thicken up. BTW - the corn flour that is listed as optional I do believe is corn starch. Maybe I just don't know how to fry corn dogs. Read More
