Here's a listing of some of the hush puppy recipes that came through here recently. Hopefully you'll find what you're looking for. If not, let us know and I bet someone will be by shortly with another recipe for you :)
I live in Oak Island and know what you are talking about. Around here they take a recipe like the one Raine gave you and add a little sugar. I would try a tblsp. first and if not sweet enough add more the next time.
