Johnny Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
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

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!
