A Hoe cake is a Southern bread that is cooked in an iron skillet,
similar to cornbread.

Now here's a traditional summer supper to try!
Serve with a pot of red beans and rice or some butter beans,
 freshly sliced garden tomatoes and a good tall glass of sweet tea!
A slice of hoe cake will warm your insides ~
They are perfect served for breakfast,
slathered with some homemade apple butter alongside .
I promise your family will love this truly Southern recipe!"
Southern Hoe Cakes
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup self-rising cornmeal
2 eggs
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying

Mix well all ingredients, except for the frying oil. Heat the frying oil or butter in a medium or large skillet over medium heat. Drop the batter, by full tablespoons, into the hot skillet. Use about 2 tablespoons of batter per hoecake. Fry each hoecake until brown and crisp; turn each hoecake with a spatula, and then brown the other side. With a slotted spoon, remove each hoecake to drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Leftover batter will keep in refrigerator for up to 2 days.
