Oh yeah, but in my neck of the woods we call them hoe cakes and I can't imagine eating field peas w/ham or greens without them. We also serve them with tomato gravy, fried eggs, grits and ham for breakfast. Any leftover cakes are served with cane syrup for a sweet and yummy after meal treat. This is the same recipe myself, my mom and granny used as well, so I know it's a winner. I urge everyone to try them, as they are great with vegetable soups as well.
