These remind me of my days in North Carolina at the old "fish camps" where you could get all you could eat----and I certainly could put away a bunch of these delicious hushpuppies!
Serves: 4
1 cup Yellow Cornmeal
1/4 cup All-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
Pinch of Old Bay or cayenne, to taste
1 Egg -- beaten
3/4 cup Milk
1 small Onion -- finely chopped
Vegetable Oil for deep-frying
In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt; mix well. Add the egg, milk and onion; stir just until mixed. In a deep-fat fryer or electric skillet, heat oil to 365 degrees. Drop batter by heaping teaspoonfuls into oil; fry 2 to 2-1/2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels; serve warm.
