#26: Bahamas – Johnny Cake

It had been a while since I’d made something for breakfast that wasn’t a slice of toast with peanut butter or a bowl of oatmeal. And I like having variety in breakfast on occasion, especially on the weekends. To represent the Bahamas, I decided to make Johnny Cake, which is an incredibly simple dish that only has a handful of ingredients, all of which I had lying around. I decided to top it with an apricot marmalade that I had in the refrigerator to dress it up a bit. Essentially, Johnny Cake is a light cake that is more of a biscuit in texture. In fact, it reminded me a lot of Bisquick mix, though maybe a little less sweet. Which might explain why there are many versions of this recipe that appear to be more of a cornmeal pancake. But I elected for one that was a bit less fried, and cooked more like a cake in a pan. This is the recipe I used: https://foreignfork.com/johnny-cake/

Overall Level of Effort: 1

Skill Level: Beginner

Would Make It Again? No

Additional Notes: When it comes to baked goods, I don’t like to waste my carbs on recipes that are just “so-so.” This was definitely one of those recipes. Would probably be a bit better with more butter and in pancake form, so if you’re itching to try this, that might be the way to go.
