2 tablespoons vegetable oil for deep-frying
1 large egg
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder - double acting
1 medium green onion - chopped fine
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal

Preparation / Directions:

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, green onion, baking powder, and salt. Beat together the milk and egg in a cup and stir into the dry ingredients, just enough to moisten the dry ingredients thoroughly. Pour the oil into a heavy skillet or wide pot to a depth of 2-3 inches. Heat to 350F. Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls into the oil, being careful not to crowd the pot (fry in batches, if necessary). Fry the hushpuppies until crisp and golden, about 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper toweling. Serve hot. Serves 6-8 From Alex Patout's "Cajun Home Cooking
