Hoe Cakes (Lacy Cornbread) – Thomasville, Georgia | We're Not There Yet

About as simple of a cornbread recipe as is conceivable, this recipe comes from the executive director of the Thomasville, Georgia Visitor Center, Karen.  Her two strapping sons asked for hoe cakes each morning with breakfast.  They’re especially easy to prepare if you’ve just made bacon or something else that leaves grease in the pan.

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. sugar

Fill pan with enough oil (or bacon grease) that the cakes will bubble up around the sides.

Mix the cornmeal with salt, sugar and just enough water so that the mixture is pourable (think pancake batter consistency).  Cook in pan, flipping once and serve hot.
