1 Cup corn meal
1/2 Cup boiling water
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoon molasses

Preparation / Directions:

Combine corn meal and salt with enough water to make a stiff mixture. Add molasses and baking drippings in a heavy skillet. Cook on one side until brown. Add more butter; brown on the other side. According to hardy legend, the "Hoe Cakes" originated when slaves cooked their corn meal on a hoe during a 15 minute break period in the open field over an open fire. Of course, Hoe Cakes are much improved today. They smell and look very tempting.
