Hush Puppies from the Loveless Cafe

I haven't tried these yet. The chef from the Loveless Cafe was on the Martha Stewart show and made these. They looked too good to pass up.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Stir in onions.
  3. Combine egg yolk and buttermilk; stir into cornmeal mixture until combined.
  4. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites until stiff. Gently fold into cornmeal mixture.
  5. Fill a large deep skillet with 2 to 3 inches oil. Heat oil until it reaches 375° on a deep-fry thermometer.
  6. Working in batches, drop batter, 1 teaspoon at a time, into the oil and cook, turning once, until the hush puppies rise to the surface and are golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
  8. Serve immediately.

I can't really give a good appraisal of these because both of my onions had gone bad! I know this would have added moisture to the end product. As it was, the beaten egg whites gave these a nice, light, airy texture. They weren't the dense little things I've eaten before. So if you prefer light and airy, I think this is that recipe.

These were DELICIOUS! They could have used a touch more salt but they were very, very good!
