1 quart oil for frying, or as needed
1 large onion, diced
½ cup white sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup self-rising cornmeal
Gather all ingredients.
Heat 2 inches of oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
While the oil is heating, mix together the onion, sugar, and eggs in a medium bowl. Blend in flour and cornmeal to make a batter.
Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls, 4 at a time, into hot oil and fry until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Serve hot.
Editor’s Note: We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
