 Here is a family receipe that was handed down to me from my 97 year old
mother who got it from her mother and who knows where she got it.  I've
adopted it fo FF.

JOHNNY CAKE (revised)

1/4 Cup Egg Beaters or equiv. of 1 egg any other egg replacer
1/2 Cup Sugar
4 Tablespoons Applesauce
1 t soda + 1 C sour milk* (or buttermilk)
1 teaspoon salt
11/2 Cup Flour
11/2 Cup Corn Meal

Mix all dry ingredients together, then add wet ingredients
and stir until throughly mixed.

Bake 15-20 minutes in 325-350 oven

Fills 2 Large Layer Cake pans

*you can make 1 cup of sour milk by adding 1 cup
of skimmed milk to 3 Tablespoons vinegar.

Eating Hint:

Cut Johnny Cake into pie shaped pieces (6 per pan).  Then cut
a piece in half so that top is one-half and the bottom is the
other half.  Place on a plate and cover with syrup.
Eat and enjoy! Mmmmm!

This receipe was adapted from one that my 97 yr old mother had
in her receipe file and I think she got it from her mother.
