1/4 c Oil 2 c Yellow cornmeal 1 1/2 ts Salt 1 ts Baking powder 3/4 c Milk 3/4 c Water Heat the oil in a heavy pot or preferable a cast iron dutch oven. Mix the dry ingredients, then add the milk and water. Pour the batter into the hot oil, and allow a crust to form on the bottom before stirring. Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally; cook for about 15 minutes. Serve in bowls with milk and sugar, like a hot cereal. A very old-time, traditional breakfast, couche couche is the Cajun version of fried cornmeal mush. Typos By Jim Kirk - by
