Are corn dogs gluten-free?

You may wonder, isn’t corn dog made of corn meal which is already gluten-free?

Yes corn meal makes a large part of a corn dog batter. However, for the batter to hold together with the fine crumbs, flour is often added in the mix. Therefore, I adapted this recipe to make it gluten-free, egg-free, nut-free and dairy-free!
