Stove Top Cornbread is made by frying small rounds of cornbread batter in a skillet on top of the stove.
These flapjacks are light and fluffy with a delicious cornmeal taste. They look like pancakes.
Enjoy hot from the pan. Good drizzled with honey, maple syrup or buttery pancake syrup.
Stove Top Cornbread is a variation of my Homemade Self-Rising Cornbread recipe.
