Yield 6 to 8 (3-inch) cakes
Number Of Ingredients 16
- In a glass measuring cup, add the warm water, stir in the yeast and the 1/2 teaspoon of sugar and let bloom until foamy, about 10 to 15 minutes.
- Combine the cornmeal, flour, salt and brown sugar in a large bowl. Pour the yeast mixture into dry ingredients. Combine the buttermilk and eggs in the same measuring cup used for the yeast, and add it to the yeast and flour mixture. Mix well with a whisk. Set aside for 10 minutes.
- In a large nonstick skillet over high heat, add 1/3 of the oil and a tablespoon of the butter and heat until hot. Ladle 2 ounces of batter per cake into the pan, cook for 2 to 3 minutes, flip, and cook for 2 minutes more. Remove the cake to a towel lined plate, then sprinkle lightly with sea salt. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding additional oil and butter per batch. Arrange the hoe cakes on a serving platter and serve immediately with Hot Molasses Butter.
- In a small bowl, beat the butter with a hand mixer until light and creamy. Add the salt, cayenne, and molasses and mix well.
- Guy's Tip: If you have time, turn the butter mixture out onto a piece of plastic wrap and form it into a cylinder. Wrap tightly and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Slice into 1/4-inch rounds and serve with Hoe Cakes.
Hoe cake is a Southern bread that is cooked in an iron skillet, like cornbread. This recipe stems back to my great-great grandmother. My father has made this recipe for years, and it is always requested from his grandchildren. A slice of hoe cake will warm your insides -- slathered with some homemade apple butter alongside of some butter beans, freshly sliced tomatoes and a good tall glass of sweet tea. I promise your family will love this truly Southern recipe!

- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a well-seasoned cast iron skillet with the shortening, and place it in the oven as it heats.
- Whisk together the flour and milk in a bowl, to make a thick but still runny batter.
- Remove the hot greased skillet from the preheated oven, and quickly sprinkle a pinch of garlic salt over the bottom of the skillet. Immediately pour in the batter, and sprinkle the top with a pinch of garlic salt.
- Return the skillet to the oven, and bake in the preheated oven until the cake has risen and the top is golden brown, about 20 minutes.

- In a large bowl, measure the corn meal and salt. Pour the boiling water over the corn meal and stir it up. The corn meal will swell up, absorbing the water, and making a very thick mash.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. You can use as little as two tablespoons of oil per panful, but it is a little easier to use 4-5 tablespoons of oil for each panful. Use your waistline and frying skill as the final judge. Now scoop up a little of the corn meal mush (about 1/4 cup) and shape it into a patty. It will still be warm from the boiling water, so don't burn your self. Plop the patty into the hot fat and get it to frying. Make some more, unti you have a panful. When the underside is crispy brown, turn them and cook the other side. When both sides are crispy and brown, transfer them to a plate to keep warm, and start another batch.
