This is a very old time recipe. My great grandparents used to eat this in a bowl with milk on it.

My first review didn't show up, so here it goes again! I found almost the exact same recipe for this but it was made into pancakes! I loved it! It had double the amount of milk and I used honey instead of sugar. I mixed all the ingredients together and cooked it on a griddle, just like pancakes...also called 'Johnny Cakes'... I served it with a fried egg ontop and sprinkled it with bacon salt and green onions, as you can see in my photo! We loved it!
