    The batter even after sitting for an hour was too loose and made deep fried pancakes instead of the nice tight balls. Ratios are off on this recipe.

    Very good, I made half the recipe for two of us. Plenty!!! Even tried powdered sugar on a few and Parmesan on others.

    They turned out really good! We just felt like they needed a little more salt and sugar.

    I am excited to make these again and make them aimed more for the kids (they didn't loke the spice) I may add some corn for them next time and see how it goes as they did that in the restaurant I worked for.

    Simply amazing! Took me back to my decade living in TX! Light, fluffy, crunchy, and the cayenne seasoning was perfect!!! I reduced the sugar to 2 Tbl, used a small yellow onion, and I had planned on mixing grated sharp cheddar into the whole batch before frying (but only managed to get it into the last 5 of the batch). Made exactly 30 hushpuppies! I will most definitely be making these again! :)

    Omg!!! They were awesome! My husband now thinks I'm a goddess in the kitchen lol. He already thought I was a domestic queen but this recipe was the catalyst to deity ;) lol. Everything was perfect but I think next time I'm going to experiment more with other fillings. My hubbie hates onions but said he could barely taste them (I only added half of an onion).
