  1. 2 1/2 c Yellow Corn Meal

  2. 1 tb Baking Powder

  3. 1 ts Soda

  4. 1 Egg, beaten

  5. 1 ts Salt

  6. 2 c Buttermilk

  7. 2 tb Granulated Sugar

  8. 1 1/2 c Cooking Oil (about)

  9. 2 tb All-Purpose Flour

  10. Mix all dry ingredients; beat milk and egg together and combine with dry

  11. ingredients; batter should hold its shape when picked up in spoon. If it is

  12. too soft, add more cornmeal. Drop by molded Tablespoon into 350"F fat and 1 1/2 minutes; turn and cook on second side

  13. 1 minute. Allow oil

  14. to heat a few seconds after removing a batch. Delicious freshly cooked and hot; however, leftover hush puppies freeze well. When ready to serve frozen

  15. hush puppies, place on oven rack in preheated 250"F until very hot and 48 hush puppies

  16. 2" round. Hints on frying: Using a small

  17. diameter heavy saucepan allows using a minimum oil; a 5 or 6 inch pan with

  18. 1 1/2 inches deep and heated to

  19. 350"F will cook three hush puppies in

  20. about 2 1/2 minutes. When batter consistency is correct and oil is at

  21. 350"F, hush puppies will become firm, round shapes almost as soon as they

  22. enter the hot oil. If they are cooked in oil that is too hot, they will not

  23. cook in the center. Serving suggestions: Especially good served with fried

  24. catfish, trout, shrimp, oysters, chicken or chicken-fried steak.
