These are my rendition of a sweet hush puppy. They are quick and easy to make and are great for breakfast or with coffee. I like them plain, but they are yummy rolled in cinnamon and sugar, too.

  • In a bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal mix, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, beat the egg together with the buttermilk. Gradually add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring with a fork or whisk until only slightly lumpy. Be careful not to overmix.

  • Carefully drop batter by the rounded teaspoonful into hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Drain and cool on a paper towel-lined plate. Roll balls in a small amount of cinnamon mixed with sugar, if desired, or just enjoy plain!

I was pleasantly surprised by this dish. It's good for breakfast with tea. However they don't store very well and are not good for leftovers. Read More

One word of advice if you're going to try these: don't let the spoonfuls get too big or they won't cook through without getting too done. I haven't got a deep fryer so I just heated some canola corn oil to the prescribed temperature in a pot which worked well enough. I also didn't have self rising flour or self rising cornmeal mix so I looked up an online substitute for both which involved adding a little baking powder and some salt. It worked fine. They aren't hard so if these sound good to you have at them. Read More

I'm giving these five stars because they are so darned quick and easy to make. The flavor is pretty good. They sort of taste like a spice cake with a hush puppy sort of look and texture. I ate something similar recently at a Krystal's restaurant that were called "Sweet Bites". I have a Vitamix blender so I put some granulated sugar and cinnamon in it and ground it up to the consistency of powdered sugar. I put the sugar on a plate and just threw them on top of the sugar when they came out of the oil. I think my family is really going to like them (they are all taking naps right now!). Thanks for a great recipe!! Read More
