Recipe by Denise
"I don't normally like hush puppies. They are generally too dry, too dense, and too bland for my taste. After tasting some in a restaurant that I actually liked, I decided to come up with a recipe of my own. This one deliberately uses stuff right out of the pantry so that it can be whipped up quickly and served fast."

2 (8.5 ounce) packages

ground black pepper
1 (5 ounce) can
1 (14.75 ounce) can
vegetable oil for frying, or as needed
salt to taste
My family loves sweet hush puppies with corn so this recipe was right up our alley! I did add a little flour to thicken the batter and I left out the cayenne (for my little ones). I will use this recipe again but I will cut it in half. The yield was way too much for us.
this is a decent recipe. it's a little soupy, which is why i gave it a 3 star. you have to be careful when putting it in the oil.
i did things a little different, i upped the spices (all of them) to give it more flavor and i also added some corn starch to thicken it. but you can also you flour.
over all it turned out pretty good and i think i will definitely be using this hush puppy recipe again.
I did take another reviewer's suggestion and add a little flour to thicken the batter (I didn't measure, I just added until it was the consistancy I was looking for)--it was quite wet without the additional flour. I also threw in a few chopped green onions. Very easy to prepare, the hardest part about it was the frying and not because it was hard, only time consuming. We used this as a side for Ham Bone Chowder as "dippers"--NO leftovers.
