Heat oil in a cast iron or frying pan over medium high heat.
If using your hands, wet them then scoop about 3 tablespoons each of the batter into the palm of your hand. If mixture crumbles, add more water. Flatten then gently drop into batter. Or use a spoon to drop into oil.
Fry each cornbread until brown and crisp; turn with a spatula, and then brown the other side about 3-5 minutes.
