Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cold unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a medium bowl, combine flour, yellow cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. With a fork, cut cold unsalted butter into flour mixture until pea-size granules form. Gradually add 1/2 cup cold water, stirring until mixture is evenly moistened.

  2. Step 2

    In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Drop in batter by well-rounded tablespoons. Fry until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Using a spatula, transfer to paper towels to drain; serve warm with maple syrup, if desired.

    This is our favorite recipe for Johnny cakes! They do seem to soak up more than 3 T. of oil, but we only eat it once in a while . I make the dry mix and take it camping with us. Just add the water at camp and cook in your cast iron skillet!
