I thought that by following the reviewers advice of adding more self-rising cornmeal and flour would insure that these hush puppies would turn out reasonably well. I even used a thermometer to bring the oil to 365 degrees to insure success with this recipe. I studied other hush puppy recipes and found this recipe lacked sugar which is a staple for hush puppies and added 1/2 cup. With all the improvements and advice I took, the careful watching of oil temperature, these were a big flop. The oil temp. of 365 is way to hot producing burnt outsides and mushy insides, the batter with the addition of 3/4 cup of additional flour and 3/4 cup of additional cornmeal still was not enough. If that wasn't enough, the taste was just plain. I can typically doctor up a iffy recipe with success but these were a waste of time, ingredients and just stunk up the house with that oily smell. I'm sad to give such a bad review when I had such high hopes of hush puppy success.
