Author Notes

This is a great recipe to involve the kids in. Making the batter in a quart jar provides for both easy coating of the hot dogs and a fun opportunity for younger chefs to shake up the ingredients. So crank up the summer tunes and turn lunch into a fun activity! —Out of the Box Food

Such an ingenious recipe! What a great idea, to use whole wheat pastry flour. Bet it gives these a great flavor. The use of the quart jar is so clever . . . and practical! Just love this. ;o)
