Here's a classic Frankfurter Dippy Dog recipe sent in from Julia from South Australia. She tells us that her kids love getting involved in making these, and more importantly love eating them once they're done!
TIP: These Frankfurter dippy dogs can be cooked on the a fire pit with a good quality cast iron camping pot.
2 cups self-raising flour
30 grams butter, chopped
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg, lightly beaten
tomato sauce, to serve
6 paddle pop sticks
1. Sift flour into a bowl. Using fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre. Add buttermilk. Using a flat-bladed knife, stir until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more buttermilk if necessary. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth (don’t over-knead).
2. Divide dough into 6 equal portions. Roll 1 portion out to a 10cm x 16cm rectangle. Push 1 paddle pop stick into the end of each Frankfurt. Place Frankfurt in the centre of dough. Roll dough up to enclose Frankfurt. Repeat with remaining dough, paddle pop sticks and Frankfurt's.
3. Place a large, greased cast iron pot over high heat until hot. Brush dough with egg. Carefully place in pot. Cover with lid. Reduce heat to low (if on a fire pit, move pot further away from the fire). Cook, turning occasionally for 15 minutes or until golden all over. Carefully remove from pot. Serve with tomato sauce.
