Hoe Cakes

These are delicious and we often eat them with pintos and greens for a cheap and easy meal.


  • 1 c. self-rising flour
  • 1 c. self-rising cornmeal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 T sugar
  • 3/4 c. buttermilk, or use 3/4 regular milk mixed with 1 t. vinegar
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 1/4 c.  oil
  • 1/4 c. minced onion, if desired
  • 1 T. garlic powder, if desired


Mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Heat oil (or butter) large skillet over medium heat. Drop your batter, by tablespoonfuls, into the hot skillet. Use 2-3 spoonfuls per cake.  Fry until brown and crispy on both sides. Remove cakes from pan and drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
