1 C water
1 C white cornmeal
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. butter

In a pot,heat water to a boil. In a large mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, sugar, and salt. Add boiling water, stirring gradually into dry ingredients. Batter should not be too thin. Add milk and butter. Use large serving spoon, spoon batter into hot frying pan forming cakes 3 inches in diameter. Use grease leftover from frying chicken at least an inch deep. Fry cakes on both sides until nicely browned. Serve with maple syrup.

I found this in one of my historical cookbooks. Thought it fitting for the website. I assume you could probably use oil instead of leftover grease.
