      I had my doubts but I couldn't believe how tender these were. I am going to try a batch in the oven instead of frying to see how they turn out without the extra oil. This recipe is a winner. I was eating them without anything else, they are so tasty!

      This was my first attempt at jonny cakes and they were delicious! We had them with chili and I tried one drizzled with honey--amazing! They were a little greasy, however. I actually had to add more oil between batches because the first batch soaked it all up! I won't make these to often because they are not very healthy. Taste wise, A+!

      This tastes good, but I had trouble with the recipe. It turned out to be a loose batter, not a dough. Even with an extra half cup of flour, it was still very sticky and I couldn't pat it out. It was sort of like drop biscuits. I also wonder if in step 6, it should be 1 1/2 inches wide, not thick?
