BONNIE'S JOHNNY CAKES, (gluten free)

BonniE !


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.

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a small mixing bowl, and mix the wet ingredients in another bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.

  3. Flip the cakes and cook on the other side until brown.
  4. Here is what they look like. Keep Johnny cakes warm until you have finished cooking all the batter.
