Calories: 395kcal


  • Vegetable Oil for deep frying
  • 8 Gluten free beef hot dogs
  • 1 cup Masa plus extra for dusting
  • ¾ cup White rice flour
  • ¼ cup Yellow corn meal
  • 1 tablespoon Tapioca Starch/Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 tablespoon Granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon Baking soda
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • ¼ cup Butter melted


  • ¼ teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Mustard powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Onion powder
  • 8 Corn dog skewers


  • Heat oil 375 F (190 C). You can use a deep fryer, or a heavy pan. If not using a deep fryer, use a deep, heavy pot, filled to at least 3" deep.
  • Dry the hot dogs off with napkins WELL. Dust with a little masa flour, set aside
  • Combine all dry ingredients - including seasonings, if using - whisking to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter together. Combine wet and dry ingredients, mixing until well combined and relatively smooth.
  • Transfer batter to a tall glass, cover with plastic film, allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  • If using skewers, stick them into hotdogs, making sure they go in to about halfway up the length of the hotdog.
  • Gently dip hotdogs in the batter one at a time, slowly removing from the batter and allowing excess to drip off.
  • Carefully transfer dipped hot dogs to heated oil. Fry a few at a time - turning every few minutes - until golden brown.
  • As corndogs are cooked, use a (metal!) slotted spoon to transfer them from the oil, to a pan lined with paper towels.
  • Serve hot, with mustard and/or ketchup for dipping.
