These Johnny Cakes are delicious. I have been craving them, but I can't eat them made with wheat flour, so I thought I would try my hand at making them gluten-free--success! They are delicious served with butter, honey or syrup. They freeze well, too. Photos are my own, and so is this humble recipe.
