    Hot water cornbread is basically fried cornbread.

    I'll have to add this to my list of innovative recipes from the Southwest,
    such as grilled corn with mayo.

    Also known as cornmeal griddle cakes. It's not cornbread, it's cornmeal
    pancakes.

    No, it's not. The "cakes" are much thicker -- 1/2" or so -- and the
    "mush" you make them from is much too stiff to pour. You form them in
    hand, and put them in a pan with a bit of oil. When done, you split them
    and slather on butter.

    Here's my grandmother's recipe:

    Scalded Cornbread

    Ingredients:

    1 1/2-2 cups white cornmeal
    1 tsp. salt
    water, boiling
    2-3 Tbsp. fat, for cooking

    Directions:

    Pour water into meal and salt until stiff enough to form into cakes with
    hands. Turn on the cold water tap; run hands under water to prevent
    scalding yourself, and to prevent the meal from sticking. Form
    hand-sized cakes 1/2" to 3/4" thick.

    Put into medium-hot fat, and cook until they begin to brown; turn and
    cook other side. They won't brown uniformly; don't worry. I don't
    remember, but suspect cooking time would be around 10 minutes a side;
    you want to get the middle cooked.

    Thanks for the recipe.

    I'm having some deja vu with these fried corn cakes. Maybe I'm thinking of
    an American Indian recipe.

    It's funny how few things go with ketchup.
