BLESS THIS MESS
Set a kettle to boil to prepare your boiling water. In a medium mixing bowl, add the cornmeal, flour, sugar, and salt, and mix well with a fork.
1When the water is boiling, carefully measure out 1 ½ cups and pour it all into the bowl containing your dry ingredients. Mix well to combine.
Add the oil to a large cast iron skillet, and preheat over medium to medium-high heat.
When the oil is hot, scoop about 2 tablespoons of corn mush into your hand, and gently roll the corn mush into a ball between your hands. Then gently press it between your palms to flatten
Place the pressed patties in the hot oil. Cook until the bottom side is a light golden-brown, then gently flip it over, and cook the second side in the oil.
When both sides are golden-brown, move the cornmeal patties to a paper towel-lined baking sheet.
1Working in batches, finish cooking the rest of the cornmeal mixture. When all of the cornmeal is cooked, serve hot.
