Recipe by Red Apple Guy
This isn't so much a recipe as a method of cooking cornbread in a hurry - especially in small batches. I first encountered these cornbread cakes in Tennessee at a food counter and saw these pancakes. So...I asked what pancakes were doing alongside chicken and gravy. Laughter followed and I was quickly told "well, that's cornbread." Oh really? I've been making them ever since and this recipe has a few of my own ingredients.
