I recently had a craving for cornmeal pancakes but mind you, I don’t recall ever having had them in the first place. LOL So, what did I do? I Googled. I didn’t have any fresh corn as some recipes suggested, but I located a delicious recipe over at The Pioneer Woman! The interesting part of it all is that I recently chatted with my mom about having made these delicious eats and she said that she and my Grandma gave them to me as a little child. I was a pretty sickly kid, so everything with me was trial and error. I’ll go ahead and say that these cornmeal pancakes are definitely kid tested and mother approved!
I must say that these pancakes are much lighter than my normal pancakes. I didn’t feel as heavy afterward, and that is certainly a plus! Make these delicious cornmeal pancakes and let me know what you think!
