- Oil for frying (vegetable, canola, etc)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 2/3 cup chopped onion
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 1/2 cup flour
Heat oil in deep fryer or skillet to 350 degrees.
Mix sugar, baking powder, salt, pepper, and garlic salt in a medium bowl.
In a blender, blend onion, egg, and milk until they are a milkshake consistency.
Whisk the blended mixture into the dry spice mixture. Let sit until bubbles begin to form - about five minutes.
Combine cornmeal and flour in a small bowl. Gradually whisk in wet mixture. Batter should be thick like cookie dough.
Using a 1 1/2 tablespoon scoop, drop dollops of batter in the hot oil. Fry until they are golden brown, about 4-5 minutes.
Remove hush puppies and drain on paper towels.
