Great recipe! We chose these to serve smothered in chili and cheese for dinner. I remembered having pancakes like this when I was growing up. Found this nice recipe to be just what I was looking for. Thanks for posting

Dh and I both loved these pancakes. The cornmeal gives them a distinctive taste that we thoroughly enjoy. I froze them as recommended and Dh pops one in the toaster for his breakfast before work.

For some reason, my pancakes came out very dry. I made the recipe. I have a problem with my cornbread coming out like that, too. The idea is good though. I may try adding more flour in proportion to cornmeal, another egg, or adding some fruit for more moisture. I'll also study the other cornmeal pancake recipes for ideas. The flavor was fair enough but the dryness detracted from my enjoyment.

These were pleasant tasting, but a bit too thick and heavy for my taste. I felt as though I'd eaten a hockey puck, the way it sat in my stomach. I may try them again with a bit more moisture. Thanks for posting.

This recipe was o.k. I had to add sugar to sweeten them up a little bit, without the sugar they were very bland. Even with the sugar there was a very little difference between these and normal pancakes, couldn't really taste the cornmeal at all.

Well these are definitly filling and have a nice texture, they just do not taste like pancakes to me - possibly due to no sugar. But for a healthy option these are definitly up there for texture and very filling. Thanks for posting. Miss Pixie x x x :D

Made these pancakes for breakfast today and my family gobbled them up! They are filling and had plenty left to freeze for a quick breakfast for my 2 y.o. I did make a few adjustments based on some reviews. I used more cornmeal than flour and halved the salt. I did'nt have buttermilk on hand so I did the vinegar and milk trick which worked out fine. I used butter instead of margarine and added 4tbs of brown sugar for some added sweetness(didn't make the recipe overly sweet at all). Some butter and syrup and YUM!! I think next time i'll throw in some blueberries or even try a savory version without the sugar and add some cheddar, mmmm....the possibilities! ;) Thanks for the recipe!

We enjoyed these golden pancakes, though we found them on the salty side. Next time we will substitute oil for the melted marge, or just reduce the added salt. They were appropriately crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, but otherwise pretty standard. Thanks for a nice variation on a theme!

My children loved these!! Although, I made them a little smaller and they ate them with their fingers! YUMMY!
