- 2 eggs beaten
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 large onion minced
- 1 cup self-rising flour (or 1 c. flour, ½ tsp salt, + 1½ tsp baking powder)
- 1 cup self-rising cornmeal (or 1 c. cornmeal, ½ tsp salt, + 1½ tsp baking powder)
- 1 quart oil for frying
In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, and onion. Blend in flour and cornmeal.
