Calories: 232kcal



  • 1 1/2 cups yellow corn meal
  • 1 1/4 cups flour 1 cup for the batter and 1/4 cup to roll the hot dogs in
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 16 hot dogs
  • ketchup for serving
  • mustard for serving


  • First, start by soaking the skewers for at least 20 minutes inside a bowl of water. This will prevent the skewers from burning inside the air fryer.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the corn meal, flour, salt, sugar and baking powder.
  • Add the egg and milk and mix to combine.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  • In a small plate, add 1/4 cup of flour to coat the hot dogs before dipping them into the batter.
  • Roll each hot dog into the flour, shaking off the excess.
  • Insert a skewer into each hot dog.
  • Pour the corn dog batter into a drinking glass large enough to dip the hot dogs into.
  • Lightly grease the inside of the air fryer with non stick cooking spray.
  • Dip each hot dog into the batter, letting the excess batter drip off.
  • Gently place the corn dogs in the air fryer. Turn them over slightly as some of the batter may run off. Turning them will help to coat them in the batter once again.
  • Cook at 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes, flipping half way.
  • Finally, serve with ketchup and mustard and enjoy!


  • My corn dogs were done in 8 minutes, but cooking times may vary depending on the power of your air fryer.
  • Some of the batter may run off of the corn dogs after you place it in the air fryer. This is completely normal. You can try turning the corn dogs around inside the air fryer to coat it again before cooking. They may not look perfect, but they are delicious and a lot healthier than deep fried corn dogs.
  • Don’t crowd the corn dogs inside the air fryer.
  • Always read your air fryer manual before using it.
