DIRECTIONS

  • Put dry ingredients (except for the Jalapeño pepper and cheese in one bowl and wet ingredients in another).
  • Mix together a little at a time and let sit for fifteen minutes, occasionally stirring.
  • Then put about a tsp or two of oil in a frying pan and make it hot.
  • Just before frying the johnny cakes, add the cheese and jalapeño peppers and stir well.
  • Drop by pot spoons onto a hot griddle just as you would if you were making pancakes. Wait till bubbles form on top and then flip and fry on the other side until golden brown.
  • Serve with jalapeno dip, sour cream or eat plain.
