One of my favorite things we get when at The Lady and Sons in Savannah are the hoecakes they are so delicious!  My husband made fun of the name... till he ate one.  Although, just so you know the term hoecake is from 1745 when they cooked these on a type of iron pan called a hoe.  I made these and topped them with some honey butter and they were so great!  Hubby, myself, and neighbor really enjoyed these the kids not so much.  My neighbor might have had 4.  ;-)
1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 tsp salt

Mix together all ingredients except the butter for the griddle.
Place butter on the griddle over a low medium heat.
Scoop hoecake batter onto griddle as you would pancakes.
