Yield: 1 Servings
|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)|
|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.
