  • 1 egg

  • 2 cups buttermilk

  • 2 cups corn meal

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder

  • Cayenne pepper, to taste

  • 6 Tablespoons chopped onion

  • Fat for deep-frying


Beat egg and buttermilk together and set aside. Mix all dry ingredients and add chopped onion.  Blend in egg-buttermilk mixture.  Heat fat to 370 degrees.  Drop hush puppies, a few teaspoonfuls at a time, into the fat.  Fry about two to three minutes or until evenly browned.  They will float to the surface when cooked.  Drain on absorbent paper and serve at once.
