Hot water cornbread is a Native American food item and is unique to the South.

European explorers made cornmeal into cornbread. Hot water cornbread is a mixture of cornmeal and water cooked on top of a skillet in cooking oil. The cornmeal is mixed with water to make a batter then placed in small portions in the hot oil in the skillet and browned on both sides.[1] The individual sizes generally range from two to five inches.
