A very easy orange cornbread Johnny cake to serve warm with butter and maple syrup. It's excellent with bacon or ham and leftovers are also good cold as a snack.

This is delicious! My family always eats Johnny Cake sprinkled with a little sugar (or Splenda) and soaked in milk. Yes you need to put it in a bowl first! Read More

It was VERY easy to make and it ended up tasting exactly like I thought it would...orange cornbread. Typically johnny cake is cooked as a pancake but I was OK with baking and cutting it into squares. I cut back on the milk a little and added some orange juice but even with the orange zest I would have liked more orange flavor. This was OK served it with butter and maple syrup for breakfast but not sure I like it well enough to make again. Read More
