These are one of my favorite foods.
A deep fryer or Dutch oven filled with hot canola oil.
1 cup self rising corn meal
1/2 cup self rising flour
1 onion chopped in very small pieces
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pour and stir in enough milk to make a moist mixture with all of the ingredients listed above
Mix and drop by tablespoons into the hot canola oil. Fry until golden brown all around. Remove from the oil and place on paper towels to drain off excess oil.
These are delicious with seafood or barbeque. Also, if you have extra batter, it will stay fresh to cook the next day if it is covered and placed in the refrigerator.
