Instructions Checklist
  • In a deep fryer, heat 1 inch of fat or oil to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).

  • In a medium mixing bowl combine all other ingredients, blend well and let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Use a serving spoon to scoop up tablespoon size pieces of batter and gently drop them into the oil. Rise the spoon as needed to keep the batter from sticking.

  • Cook the hushpuppies, 8 or 10 at a time, until brown. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and roll on paper towels to briefly drain. Serve hot.

Editor's Note

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

Yummy! My family loves them. Here's what I did differently, though :D I used 1 cup of cornmeal, 1 cup of regular flour & a tablespoon of baking soda (in place of the 2 cups self-rising flour). I also added a little pepper and two tablespoons of white sugar (I think I'll try brown sugar next time). I fried them in a frying pan, in about 1 1/2 inches of oil, so had to flip them over once they got brown on one side. Read More

The hushpuppies came out more like a doughnut - very doughy in the middle - and greasy. Definately not the traditional cornmeal hushpuppies. Read More

This was very good even my children LOVED them. I did not have "self rising" anything so I used 1c flour 1 c cornmeal 2 t. baking powder to cover that. Now that I think about it I could have used something like Krusteaz or Bisquick but I really enjoyed the cornbreadish taste/feel so I would still use the cornmeal. I also added a little bit of Turbinado (natural grain)sugar maybe a T. I've never fried before this was my first go and it was GREAT! I'd say the secret is to actually wait the 10 minutes they suggest before that it was way too runny. It thickened up perfect though. This recipe made 29 "pups". (Boy they went fast!) GOOD LUCK!

These Hush Puppies or another referred to them as corn fritters are terrific. I altered the recipe as suggested by another reviewer(s) using 1 c. cornmeal 1 c. self-rising flour 2 tsp. baking powder and chopped pickled jalapeno. My husband and I are not typically into preparing deep-fried foods but these Hush Puppies/Fritters were light airy and quite delicious. Thanks to the original recipe submitter and to those that "tweaked" this creation. These were a very nice addition to our battered and deep-fried Cod. Sat. night dinner was dee-lish! Read More

Excellent! I followed advice of other reviewers and used 1/2 c of corn meal in place of 1/2c of the flour. I added about 2t of baking powder and more salt. The result is a light texture not greasy and great corn taste. A keeper! Read More
