Servings 4


  • 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups onions finely chopped


  1. Mix together the dry ingredients, then add the milk. This should make a fairly thick batter.
  2. Add the onions and mix thoroughly.
  3. Drop the batter by spoonsful into hot fat.
  4. When golden on one side (about 3-4 minutes), turn them and flatten them into patties.
  5. Fry until golden on the second side (about 3-4 minutes).
  6. Drain on paper towels or a cookie cooling rack. I prefer the rack so they retain their crunchiness!
