These hush puppies have a cake like consistency (not your little ball of dry cornmeal). This is my base recipe, but it can be altered to your own taste, such as less sugar and more jalapeño. The catfish recipe is my husband's, and is more of an ingredient than a recipe, but this is our most requested meal when we're having friends over, so I thought I'd add it. I usually also serve with french fries, onion rings and fried mushrooms. Not the most healthy meal in the world...but oh, so good.
