We all love tips to make our life just a little bit more manageable. As your Dallas Household Tips Examiner I search for tips for myself and pass them along to my readers.
I was so delighted when I found this recipe; my grandparents used to make this for us! They are gone now and no one in the family remembered the exact recipe, but when I saw this I knew this was it. In my family we called these, Hoe-cakes. This was one of my all time favorite breakfasts, we would eat them with butter and either syrup, honey, jelly, or powdered sugar!
