    I made these for brunch today. My hubbie said they were "awesome". I thought they were just ok...but to be fair, I'm not the biggest cornmeal fan. So, I'll try them later on the grandkids to make my final judgement :)

    The whole family loved these, even my very picky eaters! I used vanilla yogurt instead of buttermilk because I didn't have any- it seemed to be a good substitute. These were a great consistency and I cooked them on a low heat for quite a while- no problem flipping them. We omitted the corn (picky eaters couldn't cope)... still yummy and my daughter said she liked these better than regular pancakes! A healthier alternative, too!

    Yummy! The consistency made them a bit hard to turn, so mine weren't too pretty, but they were tasty! I added a pinch of fresh rosemary!

    Really quick, easy and tasty breakfast-- and healthy! I love pancakes and these had an interesting taste and texture that make them better than plain buttermilk. Will definitely make these again any time I have a craving-- or leftover corn! ^_~
