I recently found this recipe at all, and was excited and pleased to see it, Ive been searching for a good corn dog recipe for years. Then I Tried it,what a dissapointment! the recipe calls for corn flour,and local stores dont sell it (unless they sell it by some other name) so that could be the reason for the poor results. The corn Dogs we made from this recipe were tasteless, and the texture was heavy and tough.

Corn flour can also be found in the Mexican section as "Masa Harina"

I thought this recipe was going to be good, come on "county fair" quality - it was not. I found the batter to be too thick and when it fried it was too hard. I had corn flour in my cupboard, I had it for something else, so I used it, but the amount is so miniscule that I don't even think it would be missed. I will not keep this recipe.

I used namaste gluten free baking flour mix and it still turned out pretty tasty! I think you can use any gluten free baking flour mix that you have on hand and it will turn out pretty good.
