ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!! However, I have to say that I am surprised by the mixed reviews. Some found it too dry, others too sweet, others too bland... Well, here's what I did: I halved the recipe since I only needed a small batch. I did NOT cut the sugar. And HERE'S A TIP: Think about how you like your cornbread- not sweet, moderately sweet, or Southern sweet. I am from SC, and I like mine nice n sweet, so that's why I didn't cut the sugar. But if you don't like sweet cornbread, adjust the sugar accordingly. Also, I grated a whole onion (even though, when halved, the recipe calls for 1/2 onion). Grating allows you to get tiny pieces of onion AND the onion "juice." With the onion juice, I didn't have to add any milk or buttermilk. I just mixed thoroughly. Also, since I DIDN'T HAVE ANY SELF-RISING FLOUR, I added 1/2t baking powder to the batter, and also 1t salt (remember, I halved the recipe). These didn't last long with my 1 and 3 year old. Okay, fine, I had more than my fair share, too! Awesome recipe! 5 stars any day!

These were really good. I did not have any self-rising flour, so I just used all cornmeal. I cut the recipe in half since it is only my husband and I. I also only added in 1tbs of sugar because I knew that anymore would make it too sweet.

These are awesome. I tried another recipe on this site and was very disappointed. I had to try another recipe since I still had the taste for hush puppies. I took suggestions from others and cut the amount of sugar down to 1/4 cup, added garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. I also added a can of creamed corn and the batter was perfect, no milk needed. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes before frying. I can't wait to make these again.
