These were wonderful! I had never made hushpuppies before and of course the recipe was easy to follow and they came out perfect. Kids and husband were impressed with my skills! Thanks Paula

I'm a Southerner living overseas and they don't sell self rising flour or self rising cornmeal herebut I do have regular flour and regular cornmeal. Does anyone know if I could just throw a good spoonful of baking powder in there and get the same results?
