ncaa tournament champion johnny cakes recipe

2005-04-05

(Johnny cakes are Carribbean cornbread-biscuit-pancake things. I made these in honor of The Heel's harrowing victory over Illinois over my lunchbreak today. That and I had leftover batter from breakfast.)

Sift the dry stuff together:
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup corn meal
2 or 3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder

Mix the wet stuff separately:
1 cup water
1 egg
2 tbsp oil

Pour the wet into the dry and stir just enough to mix, don't overdo it or you'll kill the baking powder. Put biscuit-sized blobs on a dry pan over medium heat. Flip, serve, eat, mmm. I added walnuts.
