We love our Baked Corn Dogs, but I wanted to make a fried corn dog like you see at fairs and amusement parks. They were very good, but they are more time consuming and obviously greasier than the baked version. I made a quadruple batch since the oil was heated, then froze all of the leftovers in freezer Ziploc bags. They reheat well in the microwave, they just loose their crispiness.
Oil for frying
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp water
1 cup soy milk
1 cup flour
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
Approximately 12 hot dogs
Approximately 12 wooden popsicle sticks
Heat the oil in a deep pan until very hot then keep over medium heat. While the oil is warming, whisk the cornstarch and water in a large mixing bowl. Whisk in the soy milk. Add the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt then whisk until smooth. Place a popsicle stick into a hot dog, leaving about 1 1/2" of the stick to hold. Roll the hot dogs into the batter, using a spoon or spatula to coat thickly and evenly. Carefully lay 2-4 coated hot dogs in the oil, but be careful not to crowd them. Fry until golden brown, gently turning with tongs to brown evenly. Remove the hot dogs from the oil then allow them to drain on paper towels.
* Leftovers can be frozen in freezer Ziploc bags. Reheat in the microwave.

My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
