1. Pour boiling water over the cornmeal and stir until a soft ball is formed. Stir in milk, oil, and onion. Beat eggs slightly, and add to corn meal mixture.

2. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. beat by hand into a smooth batter. (There may still be a few lumps.) 3. Preheat deep fat or oil to 374 degrees. Drop batter by spoonfuls into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels.

Makes about 2 dozen, or more, depending on the size. Serve hot.

Personal notes: This is Granny's recipe. We always had these whenever there was fish for dinner. I usually cut the recipe in half for my family of three.

By the way, a cookie dough scoop is perfect for dropping the dough into the hot oil, and the hush puppies are about the same size.
