Hush Puppies
For us Brits hush puppies are shoes, but for our cousins over the pond they are a sort of cornmeal ball traditionally served with fish. Quite delicious and not at all leathery!

1 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup milk
1 tblsp olive oil
1/2 onion, grated
2 eggs
1 cup plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
cooking oil (for frying)


1.In a saucepan combine the cornmeal and water
2.Cook over a medium heat, stirring constantly until the batter becomes thick and begins to take the shape of a ball
3.Remove from the heat
4.Add the milk, oil and onion
5.In a large mixing bowl beat the eggs
6.Pour the batter into the eggs
7.In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar
8.Add the dry ingredients to the batter and mix well
9.In a deep frying pan heat the cooking oil until piping hot
10.Drop the batter by the teaspoonful into the oil
11.Fry for 5 mins or until golden brown
12.Drain on paper towls
