Johnny Cakes

1/2 cup flour
1 c. flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 to 2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, lightly beaten

Mix dry ingredients, then stir in the remaining ingredients. Pour on hot, greased griddle and fry to golden brown on both sides. Serve with butter and syrup.

I used to make Johnny Cakes whenever we went camping but haven’t made them in years. While with Eric he mentioned them, so I made them one morning for breakfast. They are a little thinner than regular pancakes but quite good.
