Levee Camp Griddle Cakes
Brenda Cason-Brown tells us that the name for this recipe comes from the old levee camps in Greenville, Mississippi, where the cakes were a popular dish with the workers. She serves these as appetizers or as an evening meal along with slices of country ham or pork sausage.

- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- Honey or maple syrup
- Combine cornmeal and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl.
- Combine buttermilk, sour cream, and egg; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
