These pancakes have a great texture, flavour and have a picture perfect presentation. The ratio of cornmeal to flour is high in these pancakes creating a nice almost crisp outside with a soft inside. Recipe created by me.

They weren't heavy at all, nice and light and fluffy. The recipe was easy to follow, simple ingredients and directions. They cooked up nicely. However, these weren't for us. My family never had cornmeal pancakes before. I thought we would really like them, we like pancakes and we like corn muffin. I do think they turned out like they were supposed to. They just weren't for us. Thank you for a simple, easy recipe that allowed us to try something new. Like they say, you never know unless you try.

I made the recipe as posted, with buttermilk, adding 1 teaspoon of salt and a Tablespoon of sugar, since I knew I'd be eating them without syrup. I needed to add 1 Tablespoon of flour for the right consistency -- but my eggs are extra large and that might have made a difference.
Using 1/4 cup measure I got 7 pancakes.
They were wonderful -- light, fluffy and tasty. I didn't need oil, but I used a new skillet so nothing sticks yet.
I will definitely make these again! They'll also be great for when I'm craving a cornmeal muffin, but don't want to take the time to make them. I can't wait to try the leftovers with grape jelly.

Awesome simple savory pancakes. I used soured soy milk and did add about 1/2 tsp. salt after tasting the batter, but I didn't add any sweetener (try tasting the natural sweetness of the cornmeal--you don't need sugar dumped in everything!). I didn't find oil to be necessary except a little butter for the griddle. Great hearty, filling breakfast! Thanks so much for posting...I see these going into the regular rotation!
