Okra is an often-overlooked vegetable, but once you know how to prepare it, you’ll want to put it in everything—including these delicious fried okra cakes!
- Place the okra, onion, ½ cup water, egg, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and mix well.
- Stir the flour, cornmeal, and baking powder together in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture to the okra mixture and stir until well combined.
- Heat about 2 inches of oil plus the bacon drippings in a cast-iron or heavy skillet with high sides until the temperature reaches 350°F.
- Drop the okra batter into the hot oil by heaping tablespoonfuls and cook, in batches, until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels and serve warm.
