You Will Need
- 6.0 c peanut or canola oil
- 2.0 c yellow cornmeal
- 1.0 c all-purpose flour
- 1.0 tsp baking powder
- 0.5 tsp baking soda
- 0.25 tsp black pepper
- 2 eggs
- 1.0 c buttermilk
- 2.0 tbsp vegetable oil
- A thermometer
- A deep fryer
- 2 large mixing bowls
- A whisk
- 2 tablespoons
- Paper towels
- Nonstick cooking spray (optional)
Pour oil into the deep fryer and heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix dry ingredients
Mix the cornmeal with the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
Combine other ingredients
Whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and vegetable oil in a separate bowl.
Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, slowly, stirring until the batter is well blended. It should be stiff but free of lumps.
Drop batter into the oil
Use two tablespoons to form a round lump of batter. Gently drop the batter into the oil. Cook in batches of six or seven.
Fry the hush puppies for about five minutes or until they are golden brown. Turn occasionally to brown them evenly.
Remove from fryer and drain
Remove the golden brown hushpuppies from the oil and allow them to drain on paper towels. Serve them warm, and enjoy the silence while everyone digs in!
