Fair Food Monday

Y’all know I love me some theme days. 😉


Recipe at the end of post.

Cup4Cup, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, baking soda.

Resting for 10 minutes.

Rolling in cornstarch.

Use your skinniest cup for dipping.  Also…the batter will look kinda fluffy.  

Dip in batter slowly and kind of slowly rotate at the same time so it will catch on and adhere.  You want to make sure it coats every little bit.

I threw some corn and cheese into the left over batter and made…

…cheese-y corn fritters.  Super yum. 🙂

And then played like I was at a fair.  A fair that serves fried food on pretty plates. 🙂

Loved this meal.  I hadn’t had a corn dog in at least a year and a half and these are a keeper.  The fritters weren’t really a recipe since I just threw stuff in the batter but they’re definitely keepers too.

I thought about making funnel cakes too but honestly just wasn’t that inspired to mess with anything (alternative of course) sweet today.  What has happened to me?  

Hope y’all had a great weekend. 🙂


Papa L’s not feeling well today so for todays summer song let’s do a little Beach Boys. 🙂 



Corn Dogs

2/3 cup Flour   (I used Cup4Cup)

1/2 cup Corn Meal

1 tbsp Baking Powder

1/4 tsp Baking Soda

1/4 tsp Salt

1 Egg

3/4 cup Milk

4 Weiners

Sticks or Skewers.




Combine all dry ingredients.

Add egg and milk.

Whisk to combine.

Let rest 10 minutes.

While the batter is resting…heat your oil to 375*.

Also roll wieners in cornstarch to lightly coat and then insert sticks.

After 10 minutes transfer batter to a tall skinny cup.

Dip each wiener in batter and then fry til golden brown.  About 4 – 5 minutes.



In order to fry the whole wiener / make full size dogs I would have needed to use a very large pot and I didn’t want to waste that much oil.  So…I just cut the wiener in half and made little baby corn dogs.  

Here in rural route I wasn’t able to find any proper sticks so I had to use little disposable bamboo skewers (Walmart…in the kitchen tools section).  They worked great.

  1. You seriously have your gluten free flour baking amazingness down pat! Everything looks absolutely amazing! And, since I just came from a rodeo last week, fair food is kind of the perfect theme for this summer. Hope you have a great week! 🙂

  2. Geoff is going to be thrilled with this recipe. He hasn’t had a corn dog in years. We tried making some about a week ago with a corn tortilla batter but they were an epic fail!

  3. This recipe is fantastic! Husband could not tell the difference and said this is a keeper. Thank you so much for posting this. It is so nice to taste something gluten free that doesn’t taste gluten free. You are awesome!!
