Mix ingredients in order given. Drop by spoonfuls on a greased hot griddle. Cook on one side and when puffed, full of bubble and well cooked on edges, turn and cook on other side.

Too thick - needed more milk. Should also add vanilla as it needs more flavor. Was alright.

Didn't have sweet cream so used a full cup and a half of buttermilk. Also added vanilla. Came out good. Next time, I'd skip cornmeal. Not really sure what that added. Overall: okay.

These have a great flavor. The batter was thick but cooked up light, next time I would try adding 1/2 cup less flour and see how that works.
