The first known use of the term “Johnny Cake” comes from South Carolina in 1739. Historians believe the Native American word “Janiken” meant corn cake. Johnny Cakes were a staple in colonial times from the Caribbean to Newfoundland. Variations of this legendary “cake” are as diverse as the people who made them.
