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?
I haven't tried these, but I know that while I was in the Bahamas they mixed butter and sugar together and put it on the Johnny Cakes.. so good!
I've tried many recipes for johnny cakes and no luck,.But this one came out great, nice and fluffy.thanks
My DH said this reminded him of indian fry bread but not so greasy. It went great with a pot of pork 'n beans.
