Easy Disneyland Corn Dog Recipe

This Disneyland Corn Dog Recipe is spot on! So excited for you to try it. I found an original recipe on Grub Americana, claiming it’s straight from Disneyland. While I don’t know for sure, I can attest that it’s worth making…and I’m a very picky critic. I’ve had my fair share of Disneyland Corn Dogs and these are very close to the real thing. Let’s be honest, you can’t beat eating a Disneyland Corn Dog on Main Street, U.S.A., but this is the next best thing to enjoy at home!

How To Make Disneyland Corn Dogs

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan filled 3/4 full over medium-high heat until oil reaches 350-375 degrees F.
  2. Place the corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl, stir to combine. Stir in egg, milk and melted shortening. Stirring to combine. Pour batter into a tall slender glass, makes for easier dipping of hot dogs.
  3. Place hot dogs through skewers and dip generously into batter, swirling then carefully place into hot oil spinning slowly the entire time in the oil. This helps create an even golden brown color and even cooking. When a deep golden brown color, transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain some of the oil. Each corn dog took about 2-3 minutes in the frying oil. Serve hot with your favorite condiments.

The batter is very easy to prepare. Mix your dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl first then stir in the wet ingredients. Once combined, transfer the corn dog batter into a tall slender glass which will make for easy dipping of the hot dogs.

Find wooden skewers for your dogs and carefully skewer each one. Going slow helps. When I make these again, instead of using the cheese sticks in this photo, I’ll buy my own block of cheddar cheese and cut bigger pieces. These were too small in my opinion.

Where Do I Find Skewers?

Find wooden skewers at some grocery stores and places like Target or Walmart in the grilling section.

Heat your oil to 350-375 degrees F. When hot, slowly add dipped corn dog to oil.

What Kind of Oil Should I Use?

I used Canola Oil, but vegetable oil works great too.

When you place the corn dog into the oil, continue to spin the dog slowly to evenly brown and cook. Each corn dog takes about 2-3 minutes.

After Corn Dogs have been fried for 2-3 minutes and deep golden brown, transfer to a paper towel lined plate. We took a vote in our house and we all agreed that the hot links were hands down the best. Definitely give those a try.

How To Serve Disneyland Corn Dogs

  • Serve corn dogs hot with your favorite condiments such as ketchup, mustard, and Dijon.
  • The Little Red Truck serves their corn dogs with a choice of chips or sliced apples, which another fun way to serve.

    Turned out great even though I didnโ€™t have enough oil to fill a deep pan, I had to use a skillet and used a spatula and tongs to keep turning them. The first frankfurter tried to slip out of the dough so with the others I made sure the dough covered the stick so it would adhere and not fall off. Very tender and crispy, great taste.

    Just like Disneyland! We were missing the parks and decided to have some fun and make corn dogs for dinner. This recipe tastes like the real thing. Corn dogs are my oldest daughter (21) favorite must have item when we go. She took one bite and asked me how I did it? I said did what, and she said made these taste just like Disneyland. Momโ€™s secret ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you! You brought us much joy through this special recipe from our second home.

    These look amazing! We live in Egypt and can’t get shortening. Do you think coconut oil or butter could sub for the shortening?
