Rosie Makes Hoe Cakes.

 Hoe cakes.
It's what's for breakfast.

 Hoe cakes are basically pancakes made with cornmeal.
I'm having them for breakfast, 
topped with unsalted Plugra butter (the Best butter)
and some pure maple syrup.
They were delightful.

However, they can also be used as savory cakes.
These would be excellent alongside a pot roast,
soaking up the gravy.
(Rosie's always thinking ahead to the next meal!)

 Rosie's Hoe Cakes
 1 cup self rising flour
 1 cup yellow corn meal
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 TB sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup water
2 TB vegetable oil
2 TB unsalted butter

Combine all ingredients except oil and butter.
Mix until batter is smooth.
Heat oil and butter in large skillet over medium heat.
Ladle about 3 tablespoons or so of mixture at a time into hot oil.
Lightly brown on first side
(Cakes will puff up.),
then turn and brown the other side.

Serve with butter and pure maple syrup.
