Cornmeal Pancakes

Cornmeal Pancakes

These cornmeal pancakes reminds me a lot of childhood. Probably this is one of the reasons I still like to serve them at breakfast every time I have the chance.


The use of cornmeal make these pancakes a little bit crispy on the outside but still fluffy and soft enough on the inside. For those who love the corn flavor in combination with vanilla and lemon these cornmeal pancakes makes a great breakfast.

Maybe this is the kind of thing you would only do if you have kids, but whenever I make paneakcs I make more than we'll eat and freeze them. I make a stack with wax paper in between the paneakcs and put the whole thing in a quart sized freezer bag. They taste pretty good after twenty seconds in the microwave or a couple minutes in a toaster oven.
