I hope you have enjoyed your summer so far! For me, it has been a summer filled with time at the beach, several good books, and visits to local festivals. But summer isn’t over yet. 🙂 I am trying to savor the last of the warm weather before it’s time to enjoy autumn’s pleasures!
Before August comes to a close, I wanted to share one more summery recipe. These little corn dog mini muffins were inspired by the fun food I see at festivals and carnivals. Dip these little muffins into ketchup for the full corn dog experience.
The sweet little summer printables on top of my muffins are from a blog called Glued To My Crafts. So adorable! They are free to print for personal use, so maybe you can incorporate them into your end-of-summer celebrations. 🙂
Corn Dog Muffins
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup finely ground cornmeal
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
3 tablespoons light olive oil
1 large egg
3 vegetarian frankfurters cut into approximately 1/4-inch pieces (I used frankfurters from Field Roast)
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Line a mini muffin tin with paper liners. Spray the inside of the liners with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (from the flour to the salt.)
In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (from the buttermilk to the egg.)
Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and whisk until just combined. Add the chopped frankfurters, and stir until they are coated in batter.
Fill the muffin liners about 3/4 of the way full.
