1 1/4 cups all-purpose or whole wheat flour

1/4 cup cornmeal

1 Tbsp. brown sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

1 large egg

1 1/2 - 2 dozen small maple pork breakfast sausages

wooden coffee stirrers, popsicle sticks or bamboo skewers

canola oil, for cooking


1Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl; add the buttermilk and egg and whisk until smooth. Let stand 5 minutes (batter will thicken). If it's too thick to pour easily, thin with more buttermilk.


3Cook the sausages and let them cool, then stick them on the wooden sticks. In a wide, medium-large pot (it will need to accommodate the sticks too), heat a few inches of canola oil until hot but not smoking. Dip each sausage into the batter, holding it by the stick and rolling it around until well coated - dip into the oil and cook, turning as necessary, for a minute or until deep golden. Cook only two or three at a time, without crowding the pot, which could cause corn dog collisions and cause your oil to cool down.


5Drain on paper towels and serve immediately, with maple syrup.
