This is one of our favorite breakfast pancakes. A bit of butter and a splash of syrup... Yum!


  1. Sift together flour, salt and baking soda.
  2. Stir in cornmeal.
  3. Add egg and buttermilk and beat just until smooth.
  4. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each cake onto a lightly greased, hot griddle.
  5. Bake until golden brown on both sides.
  6. Serve hot.
  7. Makes about 10 pancakes.
  8. * Note: Buttermilk differs so try a mini test pancake to make sure the batter is thick enough. If not add a bit more flour.

My mom had a hankerin' for some buttermilk pancakes and also loves cornmeal so she decided to make these. She used half buttermilk and half water b/c we didn't have enough buttermilk. My mom thought these pancakes were a little dry and didn't hold together as well as we hoped. She came to the conclusion that using just buttermilk would have made a them better. Thank You for the recipe!!

Quite a change from regular pancakes! Not sweet, crispy/crunchy in texture, and absorbed syrup quickly. The texture of my batter came out quite thin(I used buttermilk) and spread thinly and cooked up very quickly. I did not find them to be very "heavy" like regular buttermilk pancakes can be, but instead they were quite light. Nice!

Great flavour. After reading the reviews I increased the amount of cornmeal and flour and decreased the milk ay about 1/8 of a cup. I also added vanilla and increased the baking soda to 3/4 tsp. They turned out really great. Because of this though, I do not feel as though I should give it a rating as I played with the recipe too much.
