140g self-rising flour
120g self-rising cornmeal, or from a mix (recommended: Aunt Jemima's)
2 eggs
1 tbsp sugar
180ml buttermilk
80ml plus 1 tbsp water
60ml vegetable oil or bacon grease
Oil, butter, or clarified margarine, for frying
1) Mix all ingredients together, except for the frying oil, in a bowl until well combined.

2) Heat the frying oil or butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Drop the batter into the hot skillet. Use about 2 tablespoons of batter per hoecake.

3) Fry each hoecake until brown and crisp; turn each hoecake with a spatula, and then brown the other side. With a slotted spoon, remove each hoecake to drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Chef's Note: Leftover batter will keep in refrigerator for up to 2 days.
