Ingredients
  • Vegetable or canola oil, for frying
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup chopped onions
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Directions

Heat oil in a deep fryer or skillet to 375 degrees F.

Mix together the sugar, baking powder, salt, garlic salt and pepper. Mix together the milk, onions and egg in a blender until they are a milkshake consistency

Whisk together the 2 mixtures and let sit until bubbles begin to form, about 5 minutes.

Mix together the cornmeal and flour and gradually whisk in the wet mixture. The batter should be thick like cookie dough.

Drop hush puppies into the hot oil by using a teaspoon until they bounce to the surface, about 2 minutes. Continue frying until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes

Remove and drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
