Wonderful pancakes! I love cornbread served with syrup, so I knew I would love cornmeal pancakes. I'm really liking molasses right now, so that aspect also appealed to me. I love the texture and flavor of these pancakes. I added some cinnamon and ground cloves, which I knew would go great with the molasses. Delicious!
