I couldn't possibly count the number of times I've eaten/made this dish. Growing up I thought these were pancakes - didn't have the real deal until I was well into my teens. I'm surprised at how little publicity this dish gets. Great as pancakes, or even as a "quick" cornbread - spread a little chili on one and roll it up. Whatever. Dense and wonderful. Thanks!

These taste good but are a bit heavy, not light and fluffy. Served with syrup. When placing on the griddle, I tipped the griddle to spread out the batter, so I wouldn't have to worry about whether the middle was done. Like the idea of adding cornmeal to the batter. Thanks for posting and thanks for the history lesson. Toni in Colorado

Boy, did this bring back memories. My grandmother made these when I was a kid. She served them with syrup or honey, like pancakes. I had them today with Blue Agave Nectar (a low-glycemic syrup). I am going to make them next time I make chili in the motorhome, since making cornbread in the so-called "oven" :wink: is a chore. Thanks for posting!
