Here I go, talking about eating healthier and an old favorite, hoe cakes, sneak up into my mind. There’s nothing wrong with going to your roots every once in a while, right? Either way I just HAD to make some of these babies on my new Lodge Logic reversible griddle. Hoe cakes on cast iron = yum-O x 10. Yeah, they’re that good!
For all of those who haven’t eaten a hoe cake before let me explain in the simplest way I know how to. Imagine if Cornbread and Pancakes had a baby together and then nestled it in a rocker made of butter.
Mmm. Getting hungrier?
I thought so.
But before we cook, how about a little history lesson? After all, you may be wondering why these awesome little pancake-look-alikes are called hoe cakes. Back in the day (and I mean BACK in the day) the field hands used to take their cotton hoes and use them as a surface to cook on. They would put the detachable blade of the hoe over an open flame and fry these cornbread cakes resulting in the dish being called hoe cakes! Makes sense now, doesn’t it?
