Today’s top five is a list of five things on SouthernPlate
that I really want you to make!
Hoe Cake varies from family to family. Most traditional recipes for hoe cake are based on corn meal but my Mama’s is more of a big old fluffy-as-a-cloud biscuit with a crunchy crust. Delicious with homemade apple butter.
Delicious, tender fried chicken with the shortest ingredient list you’ve ever seen! Many a bicycle was parked out front of our house on the nights Mama made these!
I like to find cube steak on sale and package in individual quart sized freezer bags to mix this up or a quick lunch for myself sometimes. Mama used to make it all the time and she’d pour the gravy all over it and put the whole whowha in a big old bowl.

One of those old fashioned fudge like icing recipes you just don’t find anymore.
A very special recipe from a very special lady. Mix up a batch of these and store them in the freezer to bring out for a dessert treat anytime.
I feel like a tiny bird with a big song!
