Hot Water Cornbread

- 1 cup cornmeal
- 3 pinches of salt
- 1 pinch of sugar
- 2 tbsp. dehydrated onion flakes
- 1 cup boiling water

Big Cast Iron Skillet
Vegetable Oil or Crisco - about 1/2" in the pan
Metal Spatula
Plate lined with paper towels

Heat oil over medium high.

Combine all the dry ingredients. Boil water and combine 1/2 cup quickly. Add a little at a time, until it's the consistency of spackle.

Get a spoonful and flatten into a patty about the size of your palm. Place in oil. Careful! It should really fry up almost violently, so stand back between placing patties in. Each side should fry for about 1-2 minutes.

Drain and place on paper towel lined plate.

Serve with honey or butter.
