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.
