Corncakes on the Griddle
30 mins (prep 30)

This early-American dish is wonderfully simple and absolutely delicious. I learned to make it while working in a living history museum. Back when ovens were rare and most cooking was done directly over the fire bread came almost exclusively from professional bakers located in towns and cities. But women at home made a wide variety of griddle cakes as staple foods. Try a little edible history today. They go well with any meal where you might serve cornbread. Tip -- they are particularly handy when camping or even when grilling out because you can make them on your gas grill's side burner while tending to the steaks, burgers, or brats. Note -- In light of a few of the early reviews I would like to emphasize that these are not pancakes and will not have a fluffy, pancake texture. They are the hearty staple food of pioneer hunters, trappers, and farmers and are as different from a pancake as a black, peasant rye bread is different from Wonder bread. :)
