  • Fryer
  • Medium Bowl
  • stove


  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups self-rising white cornmeal mix
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons white onion chopped


  • Heat the oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 375°F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the cornmeal mixes, buttermilk, sugar, onion and salt until combined.
  • Drop heaping tablespoons of the batter into the hot oil and fry for 3-4 minutes, flipping once to ensure even cooking.
  • Remove the hush puppies from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.


  • Use a deep fry thermometer to make sure your oil is at the correct temperature for frying the hush puppies, as this will help them cook evenly and not be greasy or undercooked.
  •  If the batter is too thick, add a little more buttermilk to thin it out.
