I know you asked for hush puppy recipe, but thought this might be of some help also. I am in process of moving into new home and have packed up most of my recipe books but will get the one out that I use quite frequently and will type it in for you. I also have one for Mexican cornbread that uses corn and it is quite good. My husbands favorite, so hang in there and I will have it for you in a few days. Enjoy this one! It is good.
