“Johnnycake is always a simple bread and was originally called journey cake because it was frequently made by circuit riders and other travelers, being quickly prepared. Cornmeal was mixed with water or snow and baked before the fire. If you make this with white corn meal instead of yellow corn meal, add 2 teaspoons of sugar and bake on a greased griddle, it is Rhode Island Johnnycake. From the New England chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.”
