    Step 1

    Mix the sugar, salt, and cornmeal in a mixing dish. Take the water to a boil in a large pot. Slowly pour the cornmeal mixture in a steady stream into the boiling water, whisking continually. Switch off the heat and stay whisking till the mixture is creamy. Add the butter and whisk till blended and incorporated. Allow the batter to rest for 15 mins

    Step 2

    Cook a cast-iron or non-stick frying pan over average-high heat. Include some butter, oil, or bacon grease in the cast iron pan. If utilizing non-stick still include a little oil/butter. Drop the batter in roughly 25% cup scoops onto the frying pan about 3 inches apart. Allow the cakes to fry even for several minutes until the edges are cooked. This can take anywhere from 6minutes to 12 minutes. Once the edges are cooked flip the cakes over and use a spatula to push them down to a thickness of no more than 0.25 inch so they can become fine and crispy. Stay to cook on the other side for several minutes till the cakes are golden brown and crispy on the surface. include a little oil or butter while you flip them over to fry them on the other surface.

    Step 3

    Serve with butter, maple butter, enjoy.
