Yummy Treat Tuesday: Cornmeal Pancakes

I'm not a big pancake fan, but these are simply fabulous!  A big hit with kids, too:)

Cornmeal Pancakes

Measure and place in a bowl:
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
    1-2 tablespoons honey (Can sub with sugar or syrup.)
Stir in slowly:
  • 1 cup boiling water
Cover these ingredients and let stand for 10 minutes.  (I usually use the plate I'm going to flip the cooked pancakes onto for a cover.) In a large bowl, use a microwave to melt:  
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
Beat, then add to the cornmeal mixture.  At this point, I start heating a pan on low.   Mix together:
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
Stir into the cormeal mixture with a few quick strokes.
  Using a dab of butter, grease the pan.  When it's hot enough to sizzle the butter without burning it (medium-low), pour 4" cakes.  When the bubbles in the batter start to not sink on themselves, flip and cook on the other side.
I top with honey, though you can use syrup if you prefer.

Sarah and I made these today -- very yummy! However, we should definitely have NOT made a full recipe for just the two of us.

Glad you enjoyed it! Yeah, I should have mentioned this is enough to fill the hollow legs of two boys and myself, lol:)
