Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • 1

    cup cornmeal

  • 2

    tablespoons flour

  • dash of salt

  • 1

    teaspoon white sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon shortening or butter

  • 3/4 to 1

    cup boiling water

  • 2

    tablespoons of finely minced onion (optional)

Directions

Mix meal, flour, salt, sugar and onion (optional). Add 3/4 cup boiling water and shortening, mix til shortening is melted. If too thick to drop by spoonful into hot grease in skillet, add a little more hot water until consistency you want. Fry in about 1/2 inch of oil til brown on both sides, turning once. I like using an iron skillet.
