Southern Style Hush Puppies

by 247tasty

I am so excited to share this with you today! I just learned how to make these cute little hush puppies and I could not get enough of it! These little treats will blow your mind. They may be small but do not underestimate the big joy they could give you. I made these yesterday. My sister and my niece visited us. We had a nice barbecue and for dessert, I made Southern Style Hush Puppies. They were a hit. It was my first time trying it and I am so glad that I did. It went from small treats to huge smiles to our faces. We ate it as is but I have read that it also goes well with honey butter as a dipping sauce. Maybe you can try it. As for me, I will try several dips that will go well with this Hush puppies. I am just starting to explore this recipe so everything can happen!


3/4 c self-rising flour
1 cup self-rising cornmeal (not mixed)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 small onion, finely minced (use sweet onion)
1 pinch garlic powder
1 pinch onion powder
1 pinch old bay seasoning
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 to 1 cup buttermilk
canola oil for frying

How to make Southern Style Hush Puppies

Step 1: Combine cornmeal, and flour in a large mixing bowl. Mix until well-mixed then add spices, onion, and egg. Whisk until all ingredients are blended.

Step 2: Pour in the buttermilk and use a fork to stir until well-mixed. The texture you are looking for is a little stiff. Try adding more buttermilk if it’s still not stiff.

Step 3: Pour oil in a deep fryer and heat to 375 degrees. Scoop the dough using a teaspoon and drop it into the boiling hot oil. Once the dough goes up and the color turns golden brown, they are ready to remove.

Step 4: Let them drain the excess oil on a paper towel.

Step 5: Serve hot and enjoy!

Note: You can serve them as is or with honey butter.
