Hoe cake is a Southern bread that is cooked in an iron skillet, like cornbread. This recipe stems back to my great-great -great -great grandmother.

Wisk gently the wet mixture with the dry until combined. Heat oil over medium in a large non stick or cast iron skillet. Ladle in the batter sort of thin. Fry on both sides until golden brown. Serve with your choice of butter & syrup.
