Whats for Supper?

I haven’t decided exactly what I’m going to make out of my half-chicken left over from our soup, but I know I’m going to serve it with corn bread.  We love to eat corn bread with maple syrup in March when the syrup is made.  This New England dish is called “Johnny Cakes.”


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp honey

Preheat oven to 400 F.  Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, and pour into a bread pan that is greased with butter.  (Tip: use a butter wrapper to grease pans.  It has just enough on it, and you’re not creating more waste by using a paper towel.) Bake 30-35 minutes until top is browned and bread is cooked through.  Slice and serve hot with maple syrup for Johnny Cakes.

I’ve made this recipe using sugar instead of honey (equal parts), but it’s not nearly as browned on top or tasty.
