Farm hands would take the 'makings' into the fields. at lunch time they would knock the handle out of their hoe and use the blade for a griddle. While it was heating they mixed the batter. The result was simple corn flat bread. We've spiffied it up a bit and serve it topped with Real Maple Syrup and Eggs over medium on the side. After these, plain Pancakes sort of loose their appeal.
