Mix together one cup of corn meal, one tsp sugar and ½ tsp salt. Add 1 ½ cups boiling water. Mix well. Batter will be thick. Drop by tablespoonful on any well-greased fry pan or griddle. (Medium hot – 380 degrees for electric fry pans.) Do not touch or turn over for six minutes. After six minutes, turn over and cook for about five minutes. This will yield eight to ten golden brown Johnny Cakes every time. For thin crisp Johnny Cakes thin batter with milk or water – about ½ cup. Cook as above.
