Thanks! They do look good.
The Cornbread Gospels, Crescent Dragonwagon is a gold mine for corn meal and has my favorite jonnycake.
Joy of Cooking also has a good one--it's pretty bare-bones, but tasty.
In case you want to see a genuine, old-timey recipe, here's one from the Park Street Methodist Episcopal Church (Lewiston, M. Ladies' Aid Society. (1908). Cook book. Lewiston, Me.: The Ladies' Aid Society (p.28):
1 1/2 cups sour milk
1/2 cup molasses
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup flour
2 cups corn meal

Here's a savory option!
I don't know what you are calling Johnny Cake but in the Caribbean they are not like that first picture.
Best Johnny Cake I ever tasted was in the Bahamas and this is after living in Sint Maarten and traveling all over the caribbean.
It's more like a biscuit!
There is a 1937 Rhode Island law requiring that jonnycakes be made with whitecap flint corn grown in RI. The original came from the Narragansett Indians. Recipes in The Cornbread Gospels are made with 1)cornmeal, milk or water, salt; 2) cornmeal, salt, boiling water, 1 egg; 3)#2 + sugar, milk and butter.
I've bought Rhode Island white corn meal from graysgristmill.com. Their Johnnycake recipe is on the bag and also on their website.
From starters to sweets, everything you'll need.
