    Gluten Free Southern Hoecake Recipe

    Gluten Free Southern hoecake recipe you say? Yep, by golly!  Well, I declare, southern cooking takes me back to my childhood.  Cornbread, green beans, and fried meat make me full as a tick, they put me in the mood for my cowboy boots and red bandanna. If I had my druthers I’d drink some sweet tea and relax in the sunshine.  I reckon the sun ain’t shinin’ in the northwest, over yonder there might be some hanging out. Heavens to Betsy I think I’ll go make me some hoecakes.

    Seriously though, these little cakes are delicious.  You could make them instead of cornbread.  The kids would love it, with a little butter and real maple syrup to boot.  I serve them with my chili and they make a nice accompaniment to the meal. They are crispy, light and satisfying , they also would be nice for breakfast instead of the traditional pancake.


    Gluten Free Southern hoecake

    1 cup oat flour (all-purpose flour if not Gluten Free)

    1 cup cornmeal

    2 teaspoons baking powder

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    2 eggs

    1 cup buttermilk

    1/4 cup grapeseed oil or coconut

    2 tablespoons fat for frying ( bacon grease preferred)

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

    Measure out the buttermilk into a liquid measure cup, and add the oil; blend well.  Add the eggs and mix well, then combine the dry ingredients.

    Heat the oil in a cast iron skillet over medium high. Drop the 1/8 of a cup of batter into the skillet to form small cakes.

    Fry until brown and crisp, turn and brown the other side. Remove from the skillet and place on a rack in the oven.

    Serve immediately with butter along with a bowl of chili and a mess o’ greens. Or top with maple syrup for breakfast.
