Savannah Hoe Cakes

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Chef amfox

A southern delicacy that's a cross between a biscuit and corn bread. It's a real treat that should be tried!

I used to live in SC and I'm now in IL, so it's not even an option to try to get a restaraunt that even knows what a hoe cake is! These were wonderful! Crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside - just like I was back home!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together, except for the frying oil, in a bowl until well combined.
  2. Heat the frying oil or butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Drop the batter into the hot skillet. Use about 2 tablespoons of batter per hoecake.
  3. Fry each hoecake until brown and crisp; turn each hoecake with a spatula, and then brown the other side. With a slotted spoon, remove each hoecake to drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. Note: Leftover batter will keep in refrigerator for up to 2 days.
