• 1 C cornmeal, water ground
  • 2 T. melted soy-free margarine
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Cold water, as needed


  1. Mix the cornmeal with salt, butter, and just enough cold water to make a hard dough.
  2. Mash the dough as thin as you like with your fingers.
  3. Fry the cakes to golden brown. (Note 1)

Note 1:

You can add sugar and baking powder to this recipe.

Note 2:

Hoe cakes are made the same way as above, only you use a greased griddle or hot skillet. Naturally, this method cooks cakes much more quickly on a stove.
