I love hot water cornbread and since my daughter and I are the only ones in my home nowadays, I tend to make too much. I had a chance to share it with my friend Dora recently and she liked it. I served it with steamed cabbage/fresh okra, smothered pork chop, rice and gravy.
In a medium sized bowl add your dry ingredients. In a medium iron or heavy skillet add your oil and heat or medium heat until hot. Add hot water 1/2 cup at a time and mix making sure that it it is wet. Form into patties and place in hot oil and brown on each side about 3-5 minutes. Remove from skillet and place on paper towels until ready to serve. delicious with beans, greens, cabbage.
