Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon fine yellow or white cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons clover honey
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus 1/4 cup more for frying
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

  • Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together the milk, honey and egg yolks together in another medium bowl until combined. Whisk the egg whites in another medium bowl until stiff peaks form.

  • Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Gently fold in the egg whites, and then 2 tablespoons of the melted butter. Mix until the batter is just smooth and let rest for 10 minutes.

  • Heat a large nonstick saute pan, cast-iron pan or griddle over medium-high heat. Brush the pan with some of the remaining melted butter.

  • Spoon 2 heaping tablespoons of the batter onto the pan for each johnny griddle cake. Spread the batter slightly just to even out the top using a small offset spatula. Cook until lightly golden brown on each side, about 1 minute 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.
