"Hoe cake is a Southern bread that is cooked in an iron skillet, like cornbread. This recipe stems back to my great-great grandmother. My father has made this recipe for years, and it is always requested from his grandchildren. A slice of hoe cake will warm your insides -- slathered with some homemade apple butter alongside of some butter beans, freshly sliced tomatoes and a good tall glass of sweet tea. I promise your family will love this truly Southern recipe!"

I registered just so i could comment this recipes name. I grew up on "Hoe cake".We used bisquick mixed with water until the consistency is like a thick pancake.Put it in a hot oiled cast iron skillet,cooked both sides and served with butter and syrup like a thick pancake. This has been a hit with everyone I have ever made it for.I saw your name and just laughed,it brought back so many memories."Hoe Cake"..haha
I found this recipe and tried it one night when I was in a hurry. Fantastic! I didn't change a thing, and we all loved it...definitely a keeper, both because its yummy, but also it is fast and very easy.
This is something I have never tried before. This recipe tastes like a flatbread, but a little more dense. I think it would be good dipped in marinara. Sorry, I'm not southern! It cooked for a little over 20 minutes and I had to add extra milk because the batter was too thick. I used the bacon grease instead of shortening. Quick and Easy bread to serve as a side. Would probably work well cooking over a fire for a campout.
Im glad i found it. My dad use to make this when i was a kid. I loved it i dont think it had the garlic salt because we ate it with jelly. great snack. :) Thanks for posting it.
This was so delicious! I am a yankee who married a southern man and had my first "hoe-cake" last night when I went out to eat with my in-laws and husband and son. My husband begged for me to try to make it today. This recipe was WAY better than what we ate last night! Amazing!
This is a great tasting recipe! I have a 9 inch pan and it rises during baking 3/4's to the pan top so it is not a thin bread as depicted in the picture though it is still good! I would love to know if everyone else has made their's thinner. It is a great snack!
