When I was brainstorming what to do for Vegan MoFo, I came across a recipe for hoecakes by Paula Deen. I'd never heard of hoecakes before, but I loved the name (which has nothing to do with ladies of ill repute and everything to do with garden tools), and thought if anyone needs to be veganized, it's Paula Deen! The recipe looked pretty easy to switch from the dark side, and the family likes cornbread so it looked like a win-win situation. But sadly I forgot to take photos of the endeavor... so picture if you can, a steaming bowl of homemade veggie chili, with lovely crispy-on-the-outside-soft-on-the-inside corn pancakes on the side and we'll be good to go.
You will need...
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup self raising cornbread
- 2 egg equivalents (I used Ener-G)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3/4 cup soy milk
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- oil for frying
Here's a pic of Paula's hoecakes... mine looked better ;o)
