Ingredients

1 cup self-rising flour

1 cup self-rising cornmeal, or from a mix (recommended: Aunt Jemima's)

2 eggs

1 tablespoon sugar

3/4 cup buttermilk

1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon water

1/4 cup vegetable oil or bacon grease

Oil, butter, or clarified margarine, for frying

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients together, except for the frying oil, in a bowl until well combined. Heat the frying oil or butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Drop the batter into the hot skillet. Use about 2 tablespoons of batter per hoecake. Fry each hoecake until brown and crisp; turn each hoecake with a spatula, and then brown the other side. With a slotted spoon, remove each hoecake to drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Chef's Note: Leftover batter will keep in refrigerator for up to 2 days.
