|This recipe is very simple. With cornmeal make a thick mush, add a pinch of salt, make into small cakes and fry in a little bacon grease until brown on both sides. You can also bake these in the ashes of your fire or on a rock, if you don't carry a skillet. Sometimes I make them at home and carry them already cooked (this is great if I have to make a cold camp) This type of cornbread is known by many names,Johnny or Journey cake, Hoe cake, Hunter cake or Ash cake. My Grandma called it Fried Cornbread and it is one of my favorites on the trail or at home with a big bowl of beans.
