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!
I must say after trying the onion fritters, or should I say making a meal of the onion fritters, I was very excited about trying these. I ended up being a bit disappointed. I used my sister's home canned corn but other that that I followed the recipe exactly, they just were not as good as those out of the world onion patties. Maybe I'll try it again with frozen corn.
Kitten the fritters are just wonderful. I served these tonight with your Easy Pan Pork Chops & Mushrooms with gravy. These easy to make fritters are full of flavour and have great textures. I added cayenne pepper and some grated sweet onion. All I can say is WOW! The cayenne pepper added a lovely heat. I will definitely be making these again. Thanks for sharing.
As all your recipes are this is another outstanding one, I served these fritters with your Kittencal's Best Juicy Whole Roasted Chicken another wonderful recipe! thank you Kit
Fresh and tasty. Great side dish for seafood versus plain kernel or cob corn. Used frozen corn (think it tastes better).
Thanks for telling me about these, Kitten. I tried them today before they stayed in the fridge the hour, and they were delicious. Shortly, I'll have them with leftover roast. They were quite "puffy". I sprinkled a little salt over them while they were on the paper towels. I used the half and half, and 3 tbs. of sugar. I wouldn't change a thing.
OOH! These were sooo good! We had these tonight with leftover pot roast. These made it seem like a whole new meal, not "leftovers". Thanks for sharing!I'll be making these again real soon.
Carol, THESE ARE TO DIE FOR!!! I thought the onion patties were out of this world, so when I got this recipe I didn't know if it would be as good as those, BUT GIRLIE....these are fabulous!! I made a batch Saturday afternoon to serve with some pork chops and mashed potatoes. DH requested them again for lunch Sunday! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING THIS RECIPE!!!
