  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. kosher salt
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp. hot sauce
  • 1 medium yellow onion, minced
  • peanut oil, for frying

1. In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, butter, hot sauce, onion, and ¼ cup water. Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients and stir together with a spoon; let sit for 10 minutes.

2. Pour oil to a depth of 2″ in a 6-qt. Dutch oven and heat over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer reads 375°. Transfer batter to a piping bag fitted with a ¾″-diameter round tip. Working in batches, pipe and cut 3″-long logs of batter into oil; fry until golden brown, 1–2 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Season with more salt.
