JP's BLACK-EYE PEA CAKES
I had my first pea cake in the Virgin Islands in the eighties while on a Schwep's Ginger Ale TV
commercial with John Cleese and Paul Weiland Films out of London. A very old street vendor was
selling jerk chicken, pea cakes and ice cold Red Stripe Beer. I returned to Atlanta and immediately
began working on the recipe.
Yields: 60 3" pea cakes ( Don't be surprised if people eat 8 or more pea cakes each)

FOLD IN THE PEA MIXTURE FROM BOWL #1
MEANWHILE...Preheat Griddle to 300?....Until Hot water dances and evaporates....
With a Tablespoon Measuring Spoon....Dip the pea Cake Batter and drop it onto the hot griddle....
When the top of the pea cake is no longer liquid and air bubbles appear...it is time to flip ...
adjust heat if necessary ... taste a cooled peacake to see if you need to adjust spices .
Remove from Griddle....
