Southern Hoe Cake

The other day I talked about a Southern Hoe Cake that I made. I got the recipe from my favorite recipe site Southern Plate. I thought I would post the recipe here as well. I made this along side of my Salisbury Steak it was the perfect combination.
 
It taste like a huge biscuit. The outside is nice and crispy and the inside is cotton soft. I'm the girl who cant make a biscuit for the life of me, but I can make a Hoe Cake. Slap on some butter and yummo this is just the best!! Trust me.



Southern Hoe Cake

2 - cups self rising flour (do not substitute)
1 1/2 - cups milk
1/2 - cup vegetable shortening


Preheat oven to 425. Pour a thin layer of oil to cover the bottom of an eight inch round cake pan and place in oven to heat. Cut shortening into flour well.
 
Pour milk in and stir until wet. Pour into well heated pan or iron skillet and bake for 15-20 or until browned. Invert onto plate and slice.

I've been making this for some time now. I have to make two at a time. You're right it's like a big biscuit. I bake mine in an iron skillet and it comes out perfect every time! Love this recipe. It's great with crock pot meals and especially sausage & gravy over the top! :)
