In This Recipe
Fill a deep pot with oil (enough to fully submerge your corn dogs), and heat it to 360° F.
While the oil is heating, combine all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk in the egg, buttermilk, and hot sauce, if using.
Stick chopsticks or wooden skewers into your wieners. Once the oil is heated, pour the batter into a tall glass or jar and dip the wieners into the batter, covering them fully. Fry them until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes, and transfer to a paper towel.
