to those of you who answered my call for pancake recipes last friday, i say thank you. i went through and looked up each one. it was 10 o'clock at night. and there was drool. do you ever find yourself with 14 recipe windows open on your computer and you're dying to taste all of them, and it's a totally inappropriate time to get up and actually make any food? that's me. a lot. i yearned for morning to come faster. of course, i'm going to try them all. it'll give me something to preoccupy my baby mind.

i let grant pick out which would be our first trial, and he decided on these cornmeal pancakes. he chose wisely. (thank you for the link, jackie!) they were yummy light and buttery and tasted... golden. i don't think that's technically a taste, but try them and you'll see.

cornmeal pancakes
lightly adapted from simple bites... an awesome site. i couldn't help but wander around.

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup milk
3 T. butter, melted and cooled completely
1 large egg, lightly beaten

whisk together first 6 ingredients. in a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. whisk wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined (mix will be lumpy). heat a large cast iron skillet over medium low heat. grease lightly with coconut oil or butter. pour batter onto skillet 1/3 cup at a time. cook until edges are set (bubbles may not appear as with traditional pancakes), flip and cook until golden brown. keep prepared pancakes warm on a baking sheet in the oven.


notes. i can't wait to try all of her homemade syrups! mmm. last night we tried her suggestion for buttery maple, and i'm never going back. yumm. such a simple way to make that spendy pure maple syrup go farther and taste even more delish. i also tried some with blackberry jam, and loved those bites too.

i omitted the sugar from the original recipe. you'd never know.

loved her suggestion to store your cooked cakes in a low oven until you're finished flipping. we do this at camp when we're making 400 pancakes at a time- why haven't i been doing it at home?! i actually got to sit and enjoy hot pancakes with my husband:)

so. can we have pancakes every night this week?
