This recipe is from a 1950 magazine ad for Quaker Corn Meal. According to the ad, these are "the lightest, crispest little pancakes you ever tasted - Batty Cakes! A breakfast treat from the Old South."

Try adding a jalapeno pepper and some Cheddar cheese plus 1/2 teaspoon creole seasoning for some spice and flavor.
