Hoecakes or fried cornbread is a Southern favorite.

Southern Cornmeal Hoecakes

I have always called this fried cornbread and my family loves it. I make these hoecakes about once a week and they never last long. This old-fashioned recipe has been in our family for many, many years. Serve these hoecakes with any meal. I eat them for a snack in the afternoons if I have any made up. They are great with buttermilk. They are wonderful with syrup over them, too! Fried cornbread will soon become a family favorite to serve with any meal.

Ingredients for Southern Cornbread:

Self-rising cornmeal

Buttermilk or can use regular milk, too



Oil, I use canola oil

Notes: Serve your hoecakes with butter. Some people eat these like pancakes with syrup. They are good with any meal and great with collard greens! Enjoy!

If you can’t find self-rising cornmeal, here is a recipe to make it.

Recipe Feedback: “Not exactly like we made them in our house growing up in NC …. but better! I didn’t have self-rising cornmeal and they don’t carry it where I now live, but I found a recipe for it on this site that worked perfectly.”-Jennifer

“I love these. I am NOT a ‘picky’ eater but grandchildren LOVE them and when you can get them jumping up and down at just the mention of the words, YOU GOT A WINNER. THANKS!”-Ralph
