 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2   c            Yellow Corn Meal
    1       t            Soda
    1       t            Salt
    2       tb           Granulated Sugar
    2       tb           All-Purpose Flour
    1       tb           Baking Powder
    1                    Egg, beaten
    2       c            Buttermilk
    1 1/2   c            Cooking Oil (about)
   Mix all dry ingredients; beat milk and egg together
   and combine with dry ingredients; batter should hold
   its shape when picked up in spoon. If it is too soft,
   add more cornmeal. Drop by molded Tablespoon into
   350“F fat and cook about 1 1/2 minutes; turn and cook
   on second side 1 minute. Allow oil to heat a few
   seconds after removing a batch. Delicious freshly
   cooked and hot; however, leftover hush puppies freeze
   well. When ready to serve frozen hush puppies, place
   on oven rack in preheated 250”F until very hot and
   crisp. Makes about 48 hush puppies 2 round. Hints on
   frying: Using a small diameter heavy saucepan allows
   using a minimum oil; a 5 or 6 inch pan with oil 1 1/2
   inches deep and heated to 350“F will cook three hush
   puppies in about 2 1/2 minutes. When batter
   consistency is correct and oil is at 350”F, hush
   puppies will become firm, round shapes almost as soon
   as they enter the hot oil. If they are cooked in oil
   that is too hot, they will not cook in the center.
   Serving suggestions: Especially good served with fried
   catfish, trout, shrimp, oysters, chicken or
   chicken-fried steak. Source: Texas Recipes from Texas
