1 c corn meal
1/2 c flour
1 c milk
3 T sugar
3 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 med. onion, minced
Mix all but milk. About 30 minutes before you're ready to cook the hush puppies, add milk and mix. Let it sit a few minutes "to rise." Obviously there isn't any true rising involved because there's no yeast, but the baking powder does get a head start.
Put deep fat on to heat/reheat.
Dip spoon into milk and then into batter and then into hot fat, "preferably where fish have been fried," as Phil told me.
Honey, this is gooo-oood eatin'! To complete your Central Florida fish camp meal, with the fish and puppies serve cole slaw, grits, and sweetened tea.
