    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are a family-favorite they fry up light and so fluffy, a must drizzled pancake or maple syrup on top, servings is only estimated it will depend on how much the batter you drop from the spoon --- these can also be made in a deep-fryer with oil heated to 365°F :)

      Just tried these two nights ago; I usually have fried cornbread because since I left North Carolina, I can't seem to find a hush puppy recipe that is worth the effort. Until Now. This one is a "keeper". I only deviated from the exact recipe a wee bit. First, it should be noted that you cannot drop batter any larger than the teaspoonful Kittencal has specified; if you do, your hushpuppy will not get done in the middle. If you use the teaspoon(not a tsp. measuring spoon, but a tea-spoon size) to measure, they're perfect. ( They puff up). I omitted the cayenne and because I failed to read the recipe correctly, I did not chop the corn kernels, but since my results were perfect, I am never going to chop them. And finally, I did not have a 12 oz. can of corn. I had either 16 oz. or the small can which is 8 3/4 oz. I used the small one and as I said before, my hushpuppies were perfect!( By the way, I did not need more milk.) I also used a deep fryer and just rolled them over as they browned. I am so happy to finally have a "go to" recipe for hushpuppies. Thank you, Kittencal! I am a trusting fan of your recipes. As a footnote: I had some hushpuppies left over and they are delicious the second day.

      They were delicious. I made them in my deep fryer and they didn't stay together very well so next time I'll make them in a frying pan instead. Even though they were a mess after coming out of the fryer, I didn't really care because they tasted great.

      When I made these, I decided to use up some of my self-rising flour, so I used that and reduced the baking powder by half. Turns out I should have omitted it altogether because when I began dropping the batter into the skillet, it puffed up really big! I was a little worried, but when I tasted them they were very fluffy and soft. It was definitely different than I was used to, but it was a very pleasant accident because they tasted great!
