Start by putting the water and sugar in a pot and bringing it to a boil.
Once the mixture comes to a boil add the cornmeal stir until it comes together and then add the flour.
Add the salt and baking powder and keep mixing until everything is combined and firm.
Let mixture cool and will rise some from the baking powder. Once it has cooled take pieces of dough and roll them into small finger sized logs, on a floured surface.
Heat up your vegetable oil in a pan and when hot add gufong and fry until golden brown.
When browned, drain on a paper towel.
