Alabama Corn Griddle Cakes

Yield about 2 dozen


  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • Butter or margarine

How to Make It

  1. Combine cornmeal and water in a large mixing bowl; stir well. Set aside for 5 minutes.

  2. Gradually add milk to cornmeal mixture, stirring well. Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt; stir into cornmeal mixture. Add beaten egg and 2 tablespoons melted butter; stir well.

  3. Drop batter by 2 tablespoonfuls onto a hot, lightly greased griddle. (Stir mixture frequently to prevent cornmeal from settling.) Turn cakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges are browned. Serve hot with butter.
