Originally known as "journey cakes" or "hoecakes" this classic favorite was so named for its long-keeping qualities. We'd like to think our Southern Johnny Cakes keep just as long, but we wouldn't know since we just gobble 'em up soon as they're ready!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup self-rising cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup hot reduced fat milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Stir in the eggs, milk, vanilla, and butter. Don't overmix!
  2. Heat a griddle over medium-high heat about 2 minutes. Coat with cooking spray.
  3. Drop 1/4 cup batter per pancake on hot griddle. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter.

Notes

Serve with sugar-free maple syrup.
