Pioneer Johnny Cakes

Feeling in that camping/outdoorsey-kinda-feeling today. Thought I'd share an old, old recipe made all the better with my homemade butter.

You will need:

1 c. yellow cornmeal
1 ts. sugar (raw preferred)
1 TB salt (I use sea salt or Real Salt)
1/2 c. cup water
bacon grease ~ for a treat, fry some maple flavored bacon & then fry the Johnny Cakes in the flavored grease. Mmmmm :-P


~In a cast iron skillet, warm bacon grease while making the Johnny Cake mix
~In a medium bowl, w/a whisk, mix cornmeal, sugar & salt
~Add water & stir w/large spoon or spatula until it forms a paste
~Form paste into pattie & fry in melted bacon grease until they are golden brown
~Top w/butter & enjoy!

Blessings from Ohio . . . Kim<><
