Recipe for Hoecakes
Breakfast... Pancakes, Biscuits, Toast Pancakes, Biscuits, Toast



    Southerners know hoecakes from way back. They were also called ashcake because the cornmeal mixture was baked right in the coals of the open fire. Here's a way to get the best of the colliding worlds of wheat and cornmeal.

    The next time you make a pancake batter, substitute cornmeal for half of the flour mixture. If the recipe calls for a cup and a half of flour, use 3/4 cup flour and 3/4 cup cornmeal. The result is lovely - a little like an old-fashioned johnny cake and a little like a mush patty.
