Hush Puppies

1 Cup Oil For Deep Frying

1 Tsp Flour

1 Tsp Salt

2 Tsp Baking Soda

1/2 Tsp Baking Powder

1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder

Cayenne Pepper

2 Cups Yellow Cornmeal

1 Cup Sweet Corn, Fresh or Canned, Drained

1 1/4 Cup Milk or Buttermilk

2 Large Eggs

2 Tbsp Oil


Heat oil to 350 deg for frying

In a large bowl, sift together the first 6 dry ingredients, then stir in the cornmeal and green onions and add the corn

In a separate bowl combine the eggs and milk and pour into the cornmeal mixture and stir until blended and add the hot oil and stir again

This will make a stiff batter thick enough to stay on a spoon but not too dry. Adjust with milk or cornmeal to desired consistency

Carefully drop into hot oil 1 teaspoonful at a time and cook until golden brown on both sides


Drain on paper towels and serve hot
