I've been having one of those days (homesickness) again. I just don't know how to handle it. There has been a lot of shows that are featuring New England from Travel Channel to NRK. I guess it's a sign telling me I should make a visit. Someday when my kids are older. I would love to move back home to Maine. I like living in Norway, it has beautiful scenery, it's a beautiful country but nothing compares to Maine. I had made one of my child hood memories. Corn dogs. I made these for my 2 boys(my son & husband) when they come home from my son's training. He is training Kung Fu every Tuesday. Instead of frying them I baked them in my non stick muffin maker. It's very hard finding cornmeal in the local Oslo grocery stores. So I bought cornmeal while I was in Sweden. These turned out great. I also made homemade stuffed pizza muffins and homemade Orange Julius I haven't had those since 2003. I will post recipes later during the week.
1/2 cup melted butter
2/3 cup white sugar
1 cup whole milk with 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup corn meal
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl combine dry ingredients and set a side.
In a mixing bowl combine and stir melted butter and sugar, mix well. Quickly add in eggs, beat until well blended. Combine whole milk/vinegar then add baking soda. Pour mixture into the dry ingredients until well blended. Stir in sliced hot dogs to the cornbread mixture.
Pour batter in a non-stick muffin maker or pour batter in a lightly grease muffin tin and bake in the oven for 45 minutes at 175 degrees C.
