Hot Water Cornbread

With New Years Eve coming up on us I remember my mother making hot water cornbread to go with our meals on that great day and it was nothing better than to get them hot right out of the skillet, the taste was so good you had to go back for more.

When I was a kid growing up we use to watch the bowl games with our family and friends and my mother use to to make this hot water cornbread as a snack for us but during this snack time she use to add a pinch of sugar to make them on the sweet side and at dinner they were a little more buttery than sweet and it really change the taste of the cornbread but either way we loved them we could not wait to get more so today I would love to share how my mother use to make them so you can try them on your family and friends I'm telling you they are so good.

No Recipe Hot Water Cornbread


Gold metal self rising cornmeal

A pot of hot boiling water

Vegetable oil for frying

Sugar for the sweet ones (optional)

Buttered flavored cooking oil for the buttered ones (optional)


There really is no method, what my mother use to do and I do now is add your self rising cornmeal in a bowl then pour a small amount of boiling water over top of the cornmeal and stir .....Your batter should be thick very thick but mixed very well at this time if you want them sweet you can add a pinch of sugar mix in and your batter should be ready grab the oil of your choice pour enough for frying then let your grease get hot using a rounded tablespoon scoop out the batter and place it in the hot grease and fry until golden brown.......when they are brown on both sides place them on a napkin or paper towel to drain off the grease then serve hot.

I suggest making small batches because they are so easy to prepare so try it and enjoy.
