Cornmeal Pancakes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by The Daycare Lady

I like to joke that these pancakes are so light, you have to hold them down! When we have a chance, we'll make them with freshly ground cornmeal bought at local festivals. From The Best Of Country Cooking 2007

I made these pancakes this morning. It was an excellent, reliable recipe, with great flavor, texture and rise. I will definitely use this again, and have some ideas for making savory cakes as side dishes with dinner- less sugar, add fresh herbs, etc. I'll let you know how that works!

Just a note to those in low-humidity areas: the batter was a little thick, so next time I may add just a little more liquid to the recipe. I live in the desert, so our flours hold less moisture than in other regions.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the second side is golden brown. Serve with syrup. Yield: 4 servings.
