Hush Puppies



  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large finely-chopped onion*
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Accent
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Milk or buttermilk


  1. Mix first eight ingredients. When well mixed, add 1 beaten egg, then slowly add milk or buttermilk until the mixture is a thick mush.
  2. Deep fry in hot fat heated to 360 degrees F. Drop a heaping tablespoon full of the batter at a time into the fat and fry until golden brown. Cook only a few at a time and let oil get hot again between batches.
  3. Serve very hot with lots of butter.

You can also add finely chopped bell pepper to this.

* Scallions are good to use because the green color looks nice.
