    Hi Tori! Quick question did your corn dogs come out salty? Or is that just the baking soda I’m tasting? Also, was it supposed to be fluffy as you bite it or crunchy? Mine came out crunchy and the color was similar to bacalaoitos. Thanks for te reciepe, I’ll try again!

      Hi, Jen. Thanks for trying this recipe! Um, mine weren’t that salty so maybe it is the soda, but if you prefer less salt just cut back a little or add salt after you fry them. As far as the texture, well that is going to depend on you oil temp and how long you fry them. In my opinion, a perfect corn dog should be slightly crispy on the outside and softer underneath but if yours turned out extra crispy then you could try lowering the oil temp a bit next time. I hope that helps somewhat. Let me know if you have any other questions!
