DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Stir in onions.
  • Combine egg yolk and buttermilk; stir into cornmeal mixture until combined.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites until stiff. Gently fold into cornmeal mixture.
  • Fill a large deep skillet with 2 to 3 inches oil. Heat oil until it reaches 375° on a deep-fry thermometer.
  • 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.
  • Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
  • Serve immediately.
