  • 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!
