While this is a

While this is a good recipe and tasty, I was born in the South and raised by strictly Southern parents and grandparents and my entire family makes hoecakes from leftover biscuit dough when the pan is full baked in a iron skillet. No cornmeal in them. We call what you make fried cornbread and fritters.
