Hoe Cakes

hos gotta eat too.

recipe # 121

More fun named breakfast food. . .

So named, not because they are Ho Food, but because you can prepare them on the back of a garden tool named a hoe.

Hoe Cakes
1 1/2 c. corn meal
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. Crisco oil
1 1/4 c. buttermilk
1/3 c. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda

Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt and soda in medium bowl. Add eggs, oil and buttermilk.
Stir just until ingredients are moistened. Pour into heavily oiled skillet 1/4 cup of batter for
each hoe cake. Fry over medium-high heat 1 or 2 minutes or until golden brown on each
side. Use additional oil if necessary. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

The recipe I found for these was followed with a bible quote from genisis that I will not post here, but feel free to look at it here.

Hoe cakes are the opposite of a crepe. I think that if one were to eat them with your pinky up it would make sense that they would get a beat down. These things are heavy, filling and can be made quickly over high heat or slowly over low heat. A good camp recipe. They would be very good savory, say with hobo beans or pork. But what isn't good with pork?
