  • 1 cup self-rising white cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk, more or less
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons green onion, minced
  • dash hot pepper sauce (optional)
  • pepper or garlic powder, if desired


Combine the cornmeal and flour with the salt and sugar. Blend in the egg and add enough buttermilk to make a thick batter that will drop slowly but easily from a spoon. Add any green onion and other optional ingredients you want, then drop teaspoonfuls into fat (about 375 degrees) at least 3 inches deep. Fry until golden and drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a low (150 degrees) oven until ready to serve.

hush puppies, Member candy.

I also tried the recipe above. We have a 'soul food' cook-off at work every Feb. so decided on deep-frying some hush puppies right on the table for a great presentation as well. I too added bacon grease but took it a step farther - after frying up all the bacon, I crumbled the bacon up & added that to the batter. What a hit. The Cajun Queens - as we dubbed ourselves - won 1st place.
