cornmeal pancakes

This weekend we tried a fabulous new pancake recipe. I have been really into cornmeal treats lately, so when I saw a recipe on Bakerella for Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes, originally from Martha Stewart Living, I had to try it. I have a freezer full of raspberries from the u-pick farm this summer, so I used raspberries in place of the blueberries, but they were just as good.

I also had to adapt it a little because I didn't have any buttermilk in the house, and I also wanted them a little bit more cornmeally. Served with a side of bacon, these are my favorite breakfast treat. I did skip the orange maple butter.

Here is my adapted recipe:

3/4 cup cornmeal
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 egg

Combine the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet in another. Mix it all together and pour them on the griddle. Drop raspberries, blueberries or whatever-you-want berries onto the cakes before flipping.

For the original, head on over to Bakerella.

I only had milk on hand and used that, but the batter turned out too runny and I had to add more cornmeal and more flour. Still runny.

Next time, I'll make sure to try it with buttermilk. However, my little boy ate six of them because they were so thin and yummy! We froze the extras for weekday-in-a-hurry-late-for-school kind of days.
