Easy recipe with a great reward!
Did not like at all. Thought it took to much effort for the result. Still looking for a good johnny cake. will try the other one on this site.
My first review didn't show up, so here it goes again!
I found almost the exact same recipe for this but it was made into pancakes! I loved it! It had double the amount of milk and I used honey instead of sugar. I mixed all the ingredients together and cooked it on a griddle, just like pancakes...also called 'Johnny Cakes'... I served it with a fried egg ontop and sprinkled it with bacon salt and green onions, as you can see in my photo! We loved it!
my mother and I really enoyed making and eating this cake
I added 1/2 cup grated coconut and it was good. very easy to make.
My husband fondly talks about his grandmother making johnny cakes so my children and I surprised him and served them along side of a hearty chili for dinner. The cakes were so tasty. I used 1 TSP of honey instead of sugar like someone else suggested. I also used 1 cup of cold lowfat buttermilk. I just mixed everything together -- although I did whisk the egg white. I cooked them like pancakes on an electric griddle -- went very fast. The children (9 and 11) were able to turn the cakes on the griddle -- they had a blast. My husband raved about them and seemed so pleased. Thank you EDSELS1959 -- we really enjoyed this recipe. GML
