2 1/2 cups cornmeal yellow
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar granulated
2 tablespoons flour, all-purpose
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 each eggs beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil


Mix all dry ingredients; beat milk and egg together and combine with dry ingredients; batter should hold its shape when picked up in spoon. If it is too soft, add more cornmeal. Drop by molded Tablespoon into 350F (180C) fat and cook about 1 1/2 minutes; turn and cook on second side 1 minute. Allow oil to heat a few seconds after removing a batch. Delicious freshly cooked and hot; however, leftover hush puppies freeze well. When ready to serve frozen hush puppies, place on oven rack in preheated 250F until very hot and crisp.
