Blend everything together for the batter (minus the panko) using a hand blender (see warning in recipes notes) until a very thick batter is formed. Pour the batter in a large glass, cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you're ready to dip.
Cut the hot dogs in half and carefully slide them onto the wooden skewers, leaving space at the top for the cheese. Cut the cheese into large blocks and slide them on top of the hotdogs. Keep the skewers cold in the fridge until you're ready to fry.
Once your oil is hot, it's time to batter the corn dogs. Dip the corn dogs into the batter and make sure the hot dogs are completely covered in the batter. Use a twirling motion to pull them out and help the batter to stick.
Immediately dip the battered corn dogs into the panko filling. Roll them continuously until they're completely covered. Use your hands to push extra panko onto the corn dogs and cover any wet spots with more panko.
Carefully lower one side of the corn dog into the oil and fry for 5 seconds before dropping the whole thing in the fryer. This will prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pot (or fryer basket). Fry for 3-5 minutes or until the outside is a deep golden brown.
Once they're ready, remove them from the fryer and set on paper towels to remove the excess oil. Dust the exterior with a little salt, and a heavy coating of sugar.
Add your favourite condiment such as ketchup, mustard or gochujang mayo and serve right away!Enjoy!
If you're interested in finding out more about the authentic recipe from actual experts go here.Be sure to coat the corn dogs well in the batter and panko. If they're not battered well you may end up with more holes. The batter should be pretty thick to coat the hotdogs but not too thick that the batter won't blend. If the batter won't blend, add very small increments of milk until it blends. *Warning!*This recipe may break your hand blender! Because the batter is quite thick, it means your blender/hand blender will need to work extra hard to blend it properly. Don't blend too long to avoid overheating the motor and avoid cheap blenders with minimal power as they'll probably fail.If you're worried, you can always mix the batter with a whisk instead.
