Hush Puppies

1 cup cornmeal
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper or cayenne pepper (optional)
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1 egg
vegetable oil for frying

In a bowl, mix the cornmeal, baking powder, salt, pepper, sugar, and onion together. Then beat together the milk, water, and egg. Combine the liquid mixture with the dry ingredients and hand mix until smooth. Pour vegetable oil into skillet or dutch oven about 1/4" deep and when the oil is hot, drop small mounds of the hush puppy mixture into the fat. Each mound should be about 2". Use a slotted spoon to turn hush puppies when they are brown on one side. Lift out when browned all over. Place on a paper towel to drain and serve as soon as possible. You can also deep fry them instead of the skillet method. This makes about 15 two inch hush puppies.
