Johnny cake (revised)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Egg Beaters or equiv. of 1 egg any other egg replacer; (i used 1 egg white and a teaspoon of powdered egg sub and 2T water)
½ cup Sugar; (I cut this back to less than 1/4C)
4 tablespoons Applesauce; (or yoghurt works too)
1 teaspoon Soda + 1 C sour milk*; (or buttermilk)
1 teaspoon Salt
1½ cup Flour
1½ cup Corn Meal

( like cornbread only better!!!) Mix all dry ingredients together, then add wet ingredients and stir until throughly mixed. You can successfully use more cornmeal and less flour too, although I think this would be more successful with finer cornmeal (maybe 1.5C coarse cornmeal, 3/4C each fine cornmeal and flour - I used wholemeal for half).

Bake 15-20 minutes in 325-350 oven in a loaf tin or individual muffin pans.

*you can make 1 cup of sour milk by adding 1 cup of skimmed milk or soy milk to 3 Tablespoons vinegar.

the original poster (sure it was Ellen) suggested the following eating Hint:

Cut Johnny Cake into pie shaped pieces (6 per pan). Then cut a piece in half so that top is one-half and the bottom is the other half. Place on a plate and cover with syrup. Eat and enjoy! Mmmmm! My favourite is dipped in pumpkin soup, although I havent' yet tried it with syrup.
