No Fail Corn Dogs/ Cornbread Pancakes

by Laura

I have made two different homemade corn dog recipes before and have loved them both.  However, I recently came across a recipe from The Pioneer Woman that used pancake mix to make the batter. I decided to give these no fail corn dogs a try.  The results were an easy no fail batter.  It was the easiest version I have made by far.

The one thing about this no fail corn dogs recipe though is it makes a ton.  It is enough to feed a crowd or use the leftover batter to make pancakes with.  I did and served them up with butter and syrup.  They would work for a savory meal topped with barbecue meat and coleslaw or top them just like a tostada with re-fried beans, meat etc.  like I found through  this site Pinterest.

No Fail Corn Dogs/ Cornbread Pancakes


  • 3 cups Hungry Jack Buttermilk Pancake mix
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups water
  • canola oil
  • 8 hot dogs with popsicle sicks or half a skewer inserted in each (you will have leftover batter with this amount of hot dogs)


  1. In a bowl, combine the pancake mix, cornmeal, egg, and water. Whisk together until well blended.
  2. Heat canola oil in in a pot until 350 degrees.
  3. Give batter a good whisking again and dip hot dog in batter to coat. Gently place the hot dogs in the hot oil. I only cook two at a time.
  4. Place on paper towels to drain.
  5. Use extra batter for another meal of cornbread pancakes. Top with barbecue meat and coleslaw or top them just like a tostada with re-fried beans, meat etc. for a savory dish or just serve them with butter and syrup.

I have been looking for a recipe that could replicate the Pogos I love so much from back home in Canada. Corn dogs are nice but they actually do taste quite a bit different to the pogos I always got from chipstands.
This recipe got the taste down just right! So delicious! I’m so happy! Thank you for sharing! ♥

I made these just now and the kiddos and I loved them! I don’t have an oil thermometer, so I was guessing on the temperature. They did come out a little underdone on the inside…do you think my temperature was too high? About how long do they cook for you at 350? These were so easy to make! Thanks for the recipe and I’ll have to try out your other ones. 🙂

Hi Laura, thanks… have you happened to freeze any for reheating later. Hoping this will work for my little Smart Planet Corn Dog Maker too.
