Cormeal gives an excellent flavour to pancakes, although it makes them kinda hard to spread. Since these pancakes don't have sugar, they can be made either "sweet" or "savory" depending on what you have them with. They also taste great served hot right off the griddle!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cream the cornmeal, salt, and butter together.
  2. Add the milk and enough water to make a moist but firm batter.
  3. Drop, using about 1/4 cup of batter, onto a hot greased griddle, and flatten using the back of a spoon wetted with water.
  4. This can be a tad tricky, but wetting the spoon helps a lot!
  5. When brown, turn and cook the other side.
  6. Serve hot with maple syrup, honey, or butter.

I didn't really like these pancakes .. I wanted to try something a bit different, but regular pancakes are a lot better

Except for the butter, these are a lot like arepas in taste and texture. I didn't have any syrup so I put chocolate honey on mine and they're delicious.

These were suprisingly good. I thought they'd be bland, but I used orange juice instead of the water and they were super good, my 2 boys ate em up!
