This recipe works so much better than other johnnycake recipes I have tried. The key is to get the hot water at or near boiling, and otherwise, it's pretty foolproof.

I love the flavour of cornmeal, it makes all the difference. The pancakes were bit on the buttery side, but taste perfectly wonderful! I had to add quite a bit more water to make the batter manageable though. It was a bit of a problem getting them onto the griddle without making a mess!
