For over one hundred years this unusual recipe for delightfully light, flavorful, extra-delicious Johnnycake has been a prized possession our family, treasured and passed along from my great grandmother to her descendants. A cherished heritage which I hope many others will enjoy in the future. Written by Mrs. Martha A. Street, Dedham, Mass.
