- 1 cup Rhode Island jonnycake meal (or cornmeal)
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup boiling water
- 3-4 tablespoons milk
Instructions:In a large bowl, whisk together the meal, sugar, and salt. Add the boiling water and stir to combine. Thin the batter with milk until the mixture is the consistency of thin mashed potatoes and will drop easily from a spoon (you may need additional milk).
Heat 1-2 tablespoons of bacon grease or corn oil on a griddle over medium-high heat. Drop the batter by the spoonful onto the griddle and cook 5-6 minutes or until a crisp, brown crust is formed. Flip and cook an additional few minutes until browned on both sides.
Serve hot with butter.
