What's a hoecake? It looks like pancakes, but how are they different?

Incidentally, we had pancakes for dinner last night so this made me chuckle a bit.

Tonight is tortilla pizzas. I just firmed up the tortillas under the broiler and put out all the toppings.

lol, I didn't even notice the typo. I'm sure Mama meant hotcakes. That's how I read it... and what they look like

It may have been a typo, but it may not have been. A teacher I knew used to have her students make hoecakes (on a griddle) when they studied George Washington. Hoecakes are typically cornmeal pancakes, which soldiers used to cook on a clean hoe over the fire since they didn't always have a pan handy.

You may have something there, Barbara.
I guess we'll have to wait and see.
