i would recommend reducing the measures of the liquid ingredients, the batter was entirely too loose, i had to add a lot of flour and corn meal to achieve consistancy. however, they did end up tasting really good.

This is a great recipe. I used beer in place of the milk and water. My husband really enjoyed it give it a try.

As a child I hated hushpuppies. But I saw a recipe that made me want to try it again. I checked here for a quicker one an....WOW, this was the best thing I had ever tasted. It was fast, easy, little clean up and I was able to do it while chatting on line. Now that is what I call a recipe.

These had a really great texture - but the flavor just wasn't there.

These were okay. But I thought they were pretty bland. Maybe next time I will add a bit of corn and just a little sugar.
