Ingredients
  Shortening/Cooking oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Fat Frying)
  Sifted fine stone or water ground white corn meal 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Baking soda 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Minced yellow onion 1 Tablespoon
  Egg 1
  Buttermilk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Cold water 5 Tablespoon
Directions

Begin heating fat in a deep fat fryer; use a deep fat thermometer.
Stir corn meal, sugar, soda, and salt together to mix.
Place onion in a small bowl, add egg and buttermilk, and beat until frothy; pour all at once into meal and stir lightly to mix.
Add just enough water to make dough a good dropping consistency—it should be about the same as drop biscuit dough.
When fat reaches 375° F. scoop up rounded 1/2 tablespoons of dough, shape lightly on end of spoon to smooth out rough edges, drop into fat, and fry about 2 minutes until evenly browned.
Drain quickly on paper toweling and serve—hushpuppies should be sizzling hot.
