PA'S OLD-FASHIONED JOHNNY CAKE / CORNBREAD



Pa's Old-Fashioned Johnny Cake / Cornbread image

The plain version was a staple during my dad's Depression-years childhood; but we rarely had it when I was growing up. My children expect this at least once a month as a regular feature on our Saturday morning breakfast menu OR when we have breakfast-for-supper. Prepare the optional sausage and hard-boiled eggs ahead of time, and it goes together quicker-n-anything!

Time 32m

Yield 1 large cake pan, 8-10 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 8

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups cornmeal, yellow
4 eggs
2 cups milk
1 cup oil

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 425; grease a 13x9 pan.
  • Add dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl, stir through, make a well in the center.
  • In another bowl, add eggs, milk, and oil all at once; blend well.
  • Add wet to dry ingredients, stir until moistened (don't over-mix or you'll be sorry!).
  • Fold in optional ingredients. Sausage should be in crumbles or bite-size pieces.
  • Pour into prepared pan; rap pan on counter-top several times to bounce out the air-bubbles.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes--top will be golden-brown.
  • Serve with butter and maple syrup.
  • OPTION #1: Add 1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese.
  • OPTION #2: Add 1/2 - 1 cup of sweet corn (plain kernels); adds a neat "chewy" texture to the 'cake.'
  • OPTION #3: Add 6 hard-boiled, chopped eggs.
  • OPTION #4: Add 1 pound fried & drained pork sausage (crumbled) or links (bite-size).
  • TIME-SAVING HINT: Gather a handful of 1-quart zipper bags, fill with DRY ingredients, and store in your cupboard. At meal-time, add wet ingredients as described.

MOM'S JOHNNY CAKE



Mom's Johnny Cake image

I remember making this growing up from a handwritten recipe that my mom kept in a plastic sleeve. It's one of the first recipes I learned to make, and along with her banana bread recipe, the first place I learned to 'sour' milk by adding a little lemon juice or vinegar to the milk. Serve with butter and honey and a glass or milk for a great snack, or serve as a side dish to chili, fried chicken, or just about anything that you'd enjoy a hunk of cornbread with! njoy!

Provided by SrtaMaestra

Categories     < 30 Mins

Time 25m

Yield 9 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 8

1 cup sour milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 tablespoon lard (we always used vegetable shortening)
1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal

Steps:

  • Mom's instructions simply say: Mix all ingredients together. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
  • I remember making this in a weird little rectangular pan, which I'm sure we greased. I would estimate this to fit in an 8 or 9 inch square pan, Adjust time accordingly, as the 8 inch will make a litte thicker cake. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean--no longer--so it will stay moist.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together cornmeal, sugar and salt. Pour in boiling water and mix until you form a paste.
  • Gradually add in milk and stir, stopping occasionally to check the consistency of the batter. It should feel like thin mashed potatoes. (You may not need all the milk, or you may need a little more than 1/2 cup to get the right consistency)
  • In a cast-iron skillet or on a griddle, melt 1 tbsp butter. Spoon tablespoonfuls of the batter onto the skillet, spreading them out to about a 2-inch diameter. Cook on each side until golden brown, about 4-6 minutes. Make sure you have a generous layer of butter on the bottom of the skillet or griddle when making these so they soak up the flavor.

  • Combine the cornmeal, salt, and sugar in a mixing bowl.Bring the water to a boil in a large saucepan. Gradually pour the cornmeal mixture in a steady stream into the boiling water, whisking constantly. Turn off the heat and continue whisking until the mixture is smooth. Add the butter and whisk until melted and incorporated. Let the batter rest for 15 minutes (this will soften the grains to prevent a gritty texture as well as enable the consistency to thicken). At that point the consistency should resemble that of mashed potatoes. If it's still too runny let it sit a bit longer.
  • Heat a cast iron or non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add some butter, oil, or bacon grease to the cast iron pan. If using non-stick still add a little oil/butter.Drop the batter in roughly 1/4 cup scoops onto the frying pan about 3 inches apart. Let the cakes fry undisturbed for several minutes until the edges are browned. This can take anywhere from 6-12 minutes. If you try and flip them too soon they will fall apart in a mushy mess so be patient. Once the edges are browned flip the cakes over and use a spatula to press them down to a thickness of no more than 1/4 inch so they can become nice and crispy. Continue to fry on the other side for several more minutes until the cakes are golden brown and crispy on the outside. Add a little more oil or butter when you flip them over to fry them on the other side.Transfer the cakes to a wire rack placed on baking sheet and put them in a warmed oven to keep warm while you make another batch.

  • In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon. Add the buttermilk slowly. Mix in the egg, cutting into the yolk with the spoon's edge to help it mix in better. Add the water and fat or oil and stir well. The texture should be like thick soup, so you may need to add more water.
  • I like to fry the cornbread cakes in my grandmother's cast-iron skillet or on a flat iron griddle, but any skillet or grillded will be fine. Heat the skillet or griddle over medium heat and grease it well with the fat of your choice (butter is delicious, but it tends to burn unless you mix it with a little oil). Once the skillet is hot and the fat is sizzling, drop the batter from a 1/8 cup (2-tablespoon) measure into the skillet, in batches if necessary. Fry the cakes until the edges are bubbling and the centers are set, then flip with a spatula to fry them on the other side until they're done. Like with pancakes, you can't say how long it will take, but the second side always cooks faster than the first. If the cakes seem greasy, drain them on paper towels before serving hot.
