Crispy Cornmeal Drop Doughnuts

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

An inventive doughnut drop something like a sweet hush puppy with the addition of self-rising cornmeal. Roll in cinnamon and sugar, or eat them plain - they're delicious either way.

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • In a bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal mix, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, beat the egg together with the buttermilk. Gradually add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring with a fork or whisk until only slightly lumpy. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Carefully drop batter by the rounded teaspoonful into hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Drain and cool on a paper towel-lined plate. Roll balls in a small amount of cinnamon mixed with sugar, if desired, or just enjoy plain!
