In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large saucepan, heat the milk, cornmeal, oil, sugar and salt to 110°-115°, add to yeast mixture. Add corn, eggs and 6 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 15x12-in. rectangle. Cut into 3x1-1/2-in. strips.
In a deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Drop dough strips in batches into oil; fry for 45-75 seconds or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
