Yup! I've made this recipe. The batter is ideal in thickness, texture and flavor. However, IMO, two important steps are missing. First, after inserting the sticks, thorough dry each dog with paper towels. Then roll of dust with plain white flour before dipping in the batter. Without these steps, the batter may sluf-off before or during frying. I've tried it both ways and the uniformity of the retained batter is much better with dry, floured dogs. An alternative is the semi-commercial idea of using pre-stuck, frozen dogs. Cooking will be lower and slower, but it works.
And, for an easier, almost instant batter, see the Jiffy.com website recipe based on their corn muffin mix. Essentially the same batter, but easier to make. As simple as this product appears, getting the batter temperature and time 'just right,' will require some practice.
