Homemade Corn Dogs

All kids, including mine, love corn-dogs! To make everyone happy I decided to create my own version using better ingredients. The final comment was, ” Can you make more tomorrow?” This batter is good for about 10 corn dogs.

 2 eggs
Good pinch of salt
1/4 tsp. granulated garlic
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 c. buttermilk pancake mix
1/2 c. corn meal
1/4 c. milk
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Fry the corn dogs in 1 1/2 c.  oil; I suggest peanut oil.

Have fun cooking with your kids!
