A wonderful southern tradition. These are great with barbecued chicken. The recipe is from Williams-Sonoma.

I think this makes a delicious side to almost any meal. These hoecakes were easy to whip up and cook on the griddle. They were light and delicious. I ate some with just butter and some with honey...both were yummy! The green onion was a nice touch. I think they would be really good with some green chiles also. Thanks for another great recipe, PaulaG. Made for Best of 2010 Cookbooks Tag Game.

These tasted delicious. However, I had some difficulty flipping them because they were so fragile. I finally switched from my cast iron skillet to a nonstick pan, with better results.
