  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Carpenter's Johnnycake Meal
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons milk
  • Bacon grease or corn oil, for frying
  • Butter, as an accompaniment


Step 1

Combine sugar and salt with meal in large mixing bowl. Scald with boiling water and stir well. Thin immediately with milk to a mixture that will drop easily from spoon (additional milk may be necessary: mixture should be consistency of thin mashed potato).

Step 2

Drop by the spoonful onto medium hot griddle greased with 1 to 2 tablespoons of bacon grease or corn oil (do not let griddle get dry). Cook 5 to 6 minutes on each side until a brown, crunchy crust is formed and inside is soft. Serve hot with butter.
