Johnny Cake


2 cups water-ground white meal (white corn meal now days will have to do)

1 teaspoon salt

boiling water


Mix cornmeal and salt and scald it with the boiling water.

Drain and add sufficient cold milk to form a smooth soft batter.

Drop from the tip of a spoon onto a hot greased skillet or griddle.

Brown on both sides. Serve with margarine or sweet butter.

The johnny cake can be enriched with the addition of melted butter and beaten eggs.
