Hush Puppies: Civil War Style

It's a very old recipe.

Prep
Cook
Serves 0person
Ingredients
4
cups vegetable oil
2
cups yellow cornmeal
1
cup all-purpose flour
1
egg, beaten
3/4
tsp salt
1/4
tsp baking soda
2
cups milk or buttermilk
Directions
1.
In a large mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, egg, salt, baking soda, and milk or buttermilk. Mix until batter is smooth and free of any lumps. Batter should be stiff (if batter is too dry, add milk; if batter is too thin, add cornmeal). Andra's comments: "Add the liquid until it gets to the batter consistency desired. Some recommend stiff batter while others seem to go for towards pancake batter. I think the proper consistency is in between."
2.
In a cast-iron skillet or a large heavy fry pan over medium-high heat, heat vegetable oil to 350° F. or until a small amount of batter dropped into the hot oil sizzles and floats. Do not let the oil get too hot or the center of the hushpuppies will not cook thoroughly.
