How to make it

  • Note have griddle hot, but NOT so hot as to burn outside.
  • Bring the water to a boil in a large saucepan. Slowly add the cornmeal, stirring constantly. Continue to stir until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • Add the bacon drippings or butter, sugar and beaten egg. Combine thoroughly.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking powder. Stir this mixture into the cornmeal in two parts, alternating with enough milk to make a batter the consistency of corn syrup (you may need more than 3/4 cup milk).
  • (Note: iron griddle best if you have one!)
  • Ladle 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, buttered griddle for each cake. They will be very thin. Cook for about 2 minutes, until bubbles form on the top. Flip and cook the other side for another 2 minutes or so. Serve immediately
  • Makes about 10 small cakes.
