Bryant House – Jonnycakes

Bryant House - Jonnycakes

Jonnycakes (a.k.a. Johnny Cakes) usually resemble pancakes. At the Bryant House, the jonnycake is a cornmeal and molasses loaf, sliced and seved warm. It is moist, grainy-textured, and good-smelling, with a nostalgic flavor that put us in mind of bread coming out of a 1930s enamel kitchen oven.
