Pan-fried corn bread. Most southern people don't consider the high rise sweetened stuff corn bread. This is more like corn bread in the south. I add the peppers and onions. Use olive oil to make more heart-healthy. Great with collards.

I am from the deep, deep south(any further south and you would be kissing fish in the gulf of Mexico), and this hoecake recipe is as good as any I have ever come across. I have used the onions before but never the peppers and they made a delightful new addition. Excellent with field peas and collard greens.
