North carolina hush puppies

Yield: 15 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Corn meal
¼ teaspoon Soda
1 tablespoon Flour
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Sugar
½ cup Buttermilk; *note
¼ cup Water
1 \N Egg; beaten

Mix all dry ingredients together. Then add egg, buttermilk, and water. Drop by spoonful into hot deep fat. Fry to a golden brown. (If a deep pot is used, the hushpuppy will float to the top when done).

*NOTE: If you don't want to buy buttermilk, substitute ½ c. milk with 1 T. lemon juice added. Stir and let it sit for 5 minutes. It works just as well. Please note: You can make variations of this recipe in several ways: i.e., ¼ c. finely chopped onion, less sugar, etc. But, at the coast of NC the above type recipe is usually served.
