I thought johnny cakes were a southern thing? I had them at "Lady & Sons" restaurant in Savannah. They were :drool:

I'd forgotten about them until this thread. Yes, they do seem like a southern dish, due to the cornmeal.

Re: Ritz Mock Apple Pie

I have never heard of it - sounds awesome. That's a lot of sugar! Did you find it too sweet? At first glance, I thought this recipe had some connection to the hotel chain. :lol: That certainly is a lot of sugar.

Ah, and also this:
A mock apple pie made from crackers was apparently invented by pioneers on the move during the nineteenth century who were bereft of apples.

Re: Perhaps Royd can help...

Thank you Royd. I managed to locate a vegan Wooster and so I won't be needing to slave over a hot stove to make it now. I needed Wooster minor the anchovies due to a food allergy and the vegan brand suited in that regard.

Interesting to read Falvegas' recipe regardless. Thank you.

I've heard of manual butter-making (churning?) but never in a food processor. It's true though, all you need is cream and away you go.
