This is an easy recipe to make for just about anyone who wants to give it a try. Some recipes call for cream style corn. Mine calls for pancake mix instead. My kids love them and so do I. These have a slightly different texture but you are sure to be awarded by the extra flavor.
- 2 cups cornmeal
- 1/2 cup pancake mix
- 2 & 1/2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 3 jalapeno peppers,seeded and finely chopped (optional)
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (optional)
- Oil for deep-fat frying
In a bowl, combine the cornmeal, pancake mix, sugar, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl,beat the egg, buttermilk, oil jalapenos, onion and hot pepper sauce. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined.
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees.
Drop batter by rounded tablespoonfuls into oil. Fry for 3 - 4 minutes until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.Serve warm.
