  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk milk, egg, and onion together in a bowl. Stir pancake mix, cornmeal, and salt into milk mixture to form a smooth batter.
  3. Scoop ping pong ball-sized balls of batter using a small ice cream scoop; drop about 5 scoops per batch into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove hush puppies with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining batter.

I made this but it needed something wet to add all the ingredients together! Did anyone else find this to bee true? I added water to it and it was pretty good with that a little beer.
