Among the best parts of the many fairs and festivals in Indiana are the corn dogs served there! My family loves corn dogs, so I fix them fairly often at home. —Sally Denney, Warsaw, Indiana

These tasted alright, but were messy to make. When I'd dip the hot dogs in the batter in the glass I couldn't get the hot dogs back out easily. And once out the batter didn't stick to the hot dogs very well.

I have my own Iowa State Fair corn dogs that we love but wanted to try this because this one uses evaporated milk instead of buttermilk like mine. This one also reverses the amount of cornmeal versus flour. Mine uses more cornmeal than flour. Mine is also made with a tall glass used for dipping the hotdogs into the glass with the batter for ease. Although different than mine, I liked it very much. Thanks for sharing.

Made these corn dogs for labor day picnic. Everyone loved them!! Also experimented with this batter and made deep fried pretzels and cookies, sprinkled some powdered sugar on them... very yummy! Batter kind of tastes like funnel cake.

Pouring the batter into a glass for dipping is brilliant!
