HoCakes

Back to breakfast recipes

From Randy with the Tailgate Mafia in Atlanta, Georgia

My dad used to make these Ho cakes for my brother ,sister and I . His recipe varies somewhat from mine. Here is a simplified version.

8 packs Cornbread Mix
2 2/3 cups Whole Milk
4 Eggs
1 can Mexicorn
2 cans Creamed Corn
1 cup grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Cooking Spray
Salt and Pepper taste

Most cornbread mixes are about 6 oz. and tend to serve 6. As you know we have a large crowd, so I use several. Last week we used 8 packs, although they call for just adding water I use whole milk about a third of a cup per pack in addition I also add one egg for every two packs of mix. When using 8 packs I will add one can of Mexicorn and two cans of creamed corn to the mix. After combining all of the ingredients I like to add one cup of graded sharp cheddar cheese.

Pour all of these ingredients into a mixing bowl. When the batter is mixed spoon batter on to a griddle or frying pan that has been preheated to about 300 degrees and coated with butter or cooking spray, like preparing pancakes. Cook on one side until small bubbles are forming around the edges, then flip to the other side continue to cook until golden brown. Salt and pepper to taste while mixing.

My dad prepared his in the family cast iron pan and I have never been able to match the flavor of those that he prepared for our family.

Serve with Chili. Feeds 40.
