Confederate Johnnie Cake Recipe
Its Lawrence your son. I have been working really hard on the sea. I really never get to talk to you and mom, but I found some free time. But I still have to work today so this can’t be that long. I know how you and mom LOVE the Johnnie Cake Recipe so I decided to make it for yall and send it to both of you. It didn’t take that long to long to make so I didn’t miss a lot of work. I want to see both of you because I miss you both SO much! My boss is now calling me so I will try and write you again later.
Here's the recipe if you want to make it....
-two cups of cornmeal
-2/3 cup of milk Supplies
-2 tablespoons vegetable oil
-2 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon of salt
The Johnny cake is a cornmeal flatbread.Mix ingredients into a stiff batter and form eight biscuit-sized "dodgers". Bake on a lightly greased sheet at 350 degrees for twenty to twenty five minutes or until brown. Or, spoon the batter into hot cooking oil in a frying pan over a low flame. Remove the corn dodgers and let cool on a paper towel, spread with a little butter or molasses.
