Yummy Pluto Pups Recipe


Pluto pups
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/4 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch bicarbonate of soda
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 20 gram butter, melted
  • oil, for deep-frying
  • 12 cocktail frankfurts
  • 12 wooden skewers
  • tomato sauce (ketchup), to serve


  1. Sift dry ingredients into a medium bowl. Season to taste. Make a well in the centre of the flour. Gradually whisk in combined buttermilk, egg and butter, until smooth. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium-sized, deep saucepan (test oil by dropping a small piece of bread into the oil. If it sizzles immediately, the oil is ready).
  3. When oil is ready, dip 2-3 frankfurts into batter, draining off excess. Deep-fry for 2-3 minutes, turning, until golden. Drain on paper towel.
  4. Thread each pluto pup onto a wooden skewer. Continue with remaining frankfurts and batter. Serve pluto pups with tomato sauce, for dipping.
