This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT9 – Cajun/Creole. This recipe is from cookbook Cajun Cooking by Better Homes and Gardens. It is said that early settlers hushed their barking dogs by tossing them these bready little morsels. I know I'd stop barking for a few of these....Yum!!

Owww weeee - it has been a long time since I made hush puppies! I'd forgotten how good they are with butter smeared on them....yum! I followed this as written and we enjoyed these as an afternoon snack! Thanks so much for sharing, Baby Kato!
Very nice. I could taste the brown sugar in these. made for a lunch snack for DS and I. Didn't change a thing . Made as directed. Made for Holiday Tag.
These are very good but *very* rich! I liked that little bit of sweetness from the brown sugar. We served ours with ranch dip. I had to skip the green onions and replace with onion powder so that 6-year old ~Tasty Dish~ would try these. I set aside a small bowl of ranch dip with green onions stirred in for mine and husband's hush puppies. Made for Best of 2013.
