"Johnny Cake" was first used in South Carolina in 1739. Historians believe the American Indian word "janiken" meant "corn cake". Johnny Cakes were a staple in colonial times from the Caribbean to Newfoundland. Variations of this Legendary "cake" are as diverse as the people who made them.

Easy Johnny Cakes Recipe


  • 1 cup Marsh Hen Mill Johnny Cakes Mix

  1. In a medium saucepan bring water to a rolling boil.
  2. Remove from heat and pour Johnny Cake mix into a mixing bowl. Stirring constantly, drizzle the hot water over the mix.
  3. After the batter is thoroughly mixed, stir in the milk.
