Hoecakes, sometime called Johnny Cakes, are an old Southern favorite that can be made many different ways. Some serve hoecakes as bread, some serve with various sweets as a dessert or snack.
Some cooks do not use milk or eggs to make hoecakes but this recipe does and we like it prepared this way. It adds body and a firmer structure to the hoecakes for spreading on butter or other condiments.
Some people like small hoecakes, some like large; the size is up to you but we prefer small 3 to 4 inch diameter hoecakes.
