Corn Dog Muffins

My kido is a big fan of corn dogs. Initially he would recognize the stores that we have bought corn dogs at, and would begin asking for corn dogs at the very sight of those stores. These days, as he learnt reading on his own, he can read the menu or displays and even though he has no clue about that eating place, he would tell us that corn dogs are available there and we should get it.

Making it at home, would require deep fryer and so that was definitely not an option for us. But when I saw this baked version, I just had to make these at home. I did not have a mini muffin pan, so I baked these in the usual muffin pans. 

Mini muffin pans would be better because as the ratio of the hotdog to the batter surrounding it is perfect like the normal fried corn dogs. The ones I made were yum too but I got my sausage loving little one say that he had to bite the whole way through that baked batter to get to the treasure(i.e. sausage) :). So if you have a mini muffin pan, go with it.


  1. 1/2 cup of butter, melted
  2. 1/2 cup of sugar
  3. 2 eggs @ room temperature
  4. 1 cup of buttermilk
  5. 1 cup of cornmeal
  6. 1 cup of all purpose flour
  7. 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  8. 1/2 tsp of salt
  9. 5-6 hot dogs cut into 1 inch size
  • Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  • In a bowl, take the ingredients 5-8. Whisk it to let the ingredients distribute evenly.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and then whisk again. 
  • Add the buttermilk and whisk it to combine.
  • Now add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in parts, while you whisk it to combine.
  • Grease a muffin pan with butter or oil. 
  • Pour about 1 1/2 tbsp of batter into each muffin cup. Place a hot dig piece into the middle of each muffin cup.
  • Bake for about 15-16 minutes or untill the cornbread turns golden brown on top.
  • Remove it from the oven and let it cool for about 5 minutes before removing it from the muffin pan.
  • Serve it with some mustard or ketchup.
  1. Mini muffin pans are the best to make these corn dog muffins as the ratio of the hotdog to the batter surrounding it is just perfect like the normal fried corn dogs. I didn't have a mini muffin pan. So made it in the normal muffin pans.
  2. These store well in refrigerator too. Once they cool down, just store it in air tight container or ziploc bags in the refrigerator. You could just microwave them before serving.
