“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.” - by CALICOCAT1959
Original recipe yields 24 servings
- Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- 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.
- 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..." See more 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."
"Surprisingly yummy according to my 4 picky boys. A quick and easy breakfast or after-school snack. Tastes like a sweet hush-puppy...." See more"
