Mini Corn Dog Muffins

March 9, 2012

These Mini Corn Dog Muffins are so perfect if you have kids (and let’s be honest here, even if you don’t!).

They’re pretty healthy, very dippable, and they really do taste like a corn dog, minus the stick.

My kids ate these up like they were hot cakes, except the Baby. She took the hot dog out of each muffin and whined until I gave her another one. Silly baby.

Mini Corn Dog Muffins

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. Whisk butter and applesauce in a medium-sized bowl. Add eggs and whisk some more. Then add buttermilk and you guessed it, whisk some more!
