"These are my rendition of a sweet hush puppy. They are quick and easy to make and are great for breakfast or with coffee. I like them plain, but they are yummy rolled in cinnamon and sugar, too."

  1. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal mix, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, beat the egg together with the buttermilk. Gradually add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring with a fork or whisk until only slightly lumpy. Be careful not to overmix.
  3. Carefully drop batter by the rounded teaspoonful into hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Drain and cool on a paper towel-lined plate. Roll balls in a small amount of cinnamon mixed with sugar, if desired, or just enjoy plain!

One word of advice if you're going to try these: don't let the spoonfuls get too big, or they won't cook through without getting too done. I haven't got a deep fryer, so I just heated some canola corn oil to the prescribed temperature in a pot, which worked well enough. I also didn't have self rising flour or self rising cornmeal mix, so I looked up an online substitute for both which involved adding a little baking powder and some salt. It worked fine. They aren't hard, so if these sound good to you, have at them.

I was pleasantly surprised by this dish. It's good for breakfast with tea. However, they don't store very well and are not good for leftovers.

Surprisingly yummy according to my 4 picky boys. A quick and easy breakfast or after-school snack. Tastes like a sweet hush-puppy.
