FIRST: What is Self-Rising Corn Meal? Self-rising Corn meal has leavening and salt, and is enriched with B vitamins. It does not contain flour. Self-rising cornmeal and self-rising cornmeal mix is not available in my part of the country so had to go online to find out how to make my own. There must be others out there with the same problem so decided to post. Information cmes from Aunt Jemima's website! If your recipe calls for Self-Rising Cornmeal Mix go to Self-Rising Cornmeal Mix
For one cup of self-rising cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup cornmeal, PLUS
- 3 tablespoons cornmeal
- Mix together the cornmeal, baking powder and salt.
- Use as instructed in the recipe.
I use your recipe to make Paula Deen's hush puppies for our annual family fish fry! Works perfectly!!
Gosh, if I'd known this recipe was here I would have reviewed it a long time ago. This is the real deal and the recipe description says it all: if it has flour in it, it's NOT self-rising cornmeal. Cornmeal mix will work in a lot of recipes just fine but not in all of them, my Salmon Patties recipe for one. I use self-rising cornmeal all the time and used to find it everywhere, but about a year ago, it disappeared from all the store shelves here in the St. Louis area. So, I've been mixing my own and it's just like your recipe except that I usually round the cornmeal to 1 cup, leave everything else the same, and just store what I don't use. If you need exactly 1 cup of self-rising cornmeal, this recipe is perfect. Thanks so much for posting the recipe.
