  • 1 quart oil for frying, or as needed

  • 1 large onion, diced

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup self-rising flour

  • 1 cup self-rising cornmeal


  1. Heat 2 inches oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).

  2. While oil is heating, mix together onion, sugar, and eggs in a medium bowl. Blend in flour and cornmeal to make a batter.

  3. Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls, 4 at a time, into hot oil and fry until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Serve hot.

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.
