A great recipe that's quick and easy to make. I got it from a Merchant Mariner and have used it for years. Definitely a favorite and often asked for recipe.

Love this recipe. I always bake mine up in a cast iron skillet and it takes less time to make. I also did not have regular milk one evening and used buttermilk in its place and it was amazing.
