¼ teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons finely chopped white or
2 tablespoons, plus 2 teaspoons
3 tablespoons, plus 2 teaspoons water
Heat oil in the Cuisinart® 3.4-Quart Deep Fryer
until it reaches 375°F. While the oil is heating,
make the Hush Puppy batter.
Combine cornmeal, salt and baking soda in a
medium bowl. Stir in onion. Add buttermilk and
water stir just to moisten the dry ingredients.
