Pioneer Cornmeal Pancakes

The following recipe will provide 6 fairly large pancakes (six inches in diameter) to feed 6 people. Preparation time around 10 minutes. Cooking time per pancake will be around 2 minutes.


  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 1 cup white corn meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 large eggs


  • Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, and baking soda in a bowl.
  • In a jug mix the melted butter, milk and eggs, whisking gently to combine.
  • Pour the contents of the jug into the dry ingredients and stir until you have a moist batter that drops fairly easily from the spoon. You may need to add a little more milk at this point. You can either make 6 large pancakes that cover the base of the oiled griddle or do more smaller ones.

  • Cook over moderate heat until bubbles form on the surface, then flip over and do the other side until a lovely golden brown.
