In that honored Southern tradition of frying everything and to fulfill my husband's wishes, I tried frying a little cornbread. I asked Momma if we call them Hoe Cakes, and she said that we just call it fried cornbread. I do apologize if we are not as colorful and folksy as you like. Fried cornbread gives you more of the best part of the cornbread experience, the crunchy crust. After Monday's experience, my husband said "wouldn't it be great if you could make this so that it had crunchy all around." Wish granted. This is probably the easiest project I've attempted. Get the oil hot. Mix together cornmeal and buttermilk. My mom says she makes it with water a lot of times, but I have leftover buttermilk for which I have no other use. The hardest part for me was making the first flip. I put a photo below of how messy that looked. In the end, I thought it came out very pretty...and tasty. As I was frying the cornbread, a friend of mine called and I told her what I was doing. We discussed how Paula Deen calls this food hoe cakes, so she thought that's what I should call it. I said that I was no Paula Deen. She said that I was right about that, "You're more of a Paula Don't." I don't think I'm going to answer the phone anymore.
