Mini corn dog muffins
A whole new take on corn dogs which your kids and family will love. 

You'll need: 

  • 4 eggs 
  • ¾ cup buttermilk 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 cup mieliemeal (or what the US calls corn meal)
  • 1 cup plain flour 
  • 3 tsp baking powder 
  • ½ tsp salt 
  • 2 Frankfurter sausages (or viennas)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a 12-cup mini muffin tin. 
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk and olive oil. Stir in the mieliemeal, flour, baking powder and salt and mix until all the ingredients are incorporated. 
  3. Cut the sausages into 2cm lengths and place one in each muffin cup. 
  4. Pour about two tablespoons of batter into each muffin hole (over the sausages) and bake for 20 minutes. 


Children like to snack. If you think about it , our stomachs are the size of our fists, so children can fit in a lot less than grown-ups at a time. That's why they get hungry every couple of hours. It's a good idea to include a protein (cheese, cold meat, yoghurt), a slow-release carb (wholewheat bread, muffin), vegetables and fruit in your child's lunchbox.
