Cornmeal Pancakes

(4 servings)

  • 1 and 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 and 1/4 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 2 large eggs - beaten
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir in the cornmeal.

In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vegetable oil and vanilla (if desired).

Add liquid mixture to dry mixture.

Drop by heaping tablespoons on a greased hot skillet or griddle. Cook until edges are brown and bubbles are in the middle. Turn and cook on other side. Serve with butter and maple, sorghum, molasses or other syrup.

This is a pancake with substance. The cornmeal provides a great flavor and a hearty texture.
