Hi Mama,
Do you have a recipes for hoe cakes...?
Thanks

Hey there Sian!

Hoecakes, johnny cakes or corn fritters are all the same. Basically they are corn bread that has been thinned down and cooked on a hot griddle. Hoecakes got their name because back in the day, while out in the cotton fields, they would often use a garden hoe or a shovel held over an open fire to cook them since they didn't have access to a kitchen.

So, just click on the link to my cornbread recipe and add a little extra milk to thin it down to the consistency of pancake batter Then, just cook them in a skillet or hot griddle just like you would a pancake.
