My attempt at making my own corn dogs was a tear-filled failure, not even within barking distance of the ones I bought from a Walmart in Florida. The only batter I could get here is the one used for Dutch pancakes, which are really more like crepes. It didn’t have the right consistency and taste, plus it wasn’t sticking to the hotdogs! Worse, the hotdogs came in a water-filled tin can and weren’t really hotdogs, more like sausages. I tried instead to make regular Dutch pancakes – stress on tried – to little satisfaction, topped with honey syrup and ‘hotdogs’ on the side. A far cry indeed. Oh, where is my beloved Safeway!
