so good! I've never had Johnny Cakes before, so I tried this recipe. They are so awesomely delicious! Kinda like fried grits  :)>>>. Next time I'm gonna try them with a little nutritional yeast, whole sweet corn kernels, and a dash of cayenne. Yum.

I made these for breakfast at a non-veg mate's house with cornstarch and water for the egg substitute, and everyone loved them!  No one realised they were vegan.  Fantastic with blackberry jam or marmalade.

Yum! 

I used 1Tb. flaxseed plus 3Tb. of water for my egg substitute and added a *smidge* less water (preferring a thicker batter/cake).  Also tasty topped with salsa!
