Make these cinnamon sugar coated hushpuppies for breakfast, for dessert, or for a sweet afternoon snack.


  • 1 cup + 1 Tbsp. cornmeal
  • 1 cup + 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • More vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup Cinnamon Sugar Tableside Sprinkle


Whisk cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk egg with milk and ¼ cup vegetable oil together in a separate bowl. Fold wet ingredients into dry until just combined. In a medium saucepan, heat about 2 inches of oil to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with paper towel and set it beside the heating oil. Place Cinnamon Sugar in a wide bowl and set it next to the baking sheet. When oil is ready, drop heaping tablespoon size scoops of batter into the hot oil in batches of 4 or 5 at a time. Fry for 1 to 2 min. per side, until each side is browned. Transfer to the paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain and cool. Repeat with remaining batter. While hush puppies are still warm but cool enough to handle, roll them in the Cinnamon Sugar until well coated. These are best served soon after being fried.

Serving Suggestions

Enjoy with coffee or hot chocolate. Drizzle with melted chocolate or caramel sauce for a decadent dessert.

"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
