Cornmeal Pancakes

Who doesn't like pancakes?  These Cornmeal Pancakes are not your usual pancake.  These are light, filling and with a bit of crunch from the cornmeal.  We like our pancakes with butter, syrup and crunchy peanut butter.  Choose your favorite toppings and give these a try.

                                        Cornmeal Pancakes

3/4 cup Flour
1/3 cup Cornmeal
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1 Egg
1 tablespoon Vegetable or Canola Oil
3/4 cup Milk

In a medium size bowl, mix together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt.  

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, oil and milk. Stir the liquid ingredients into the dry mixture just enough to make a nice batter.

Heat a lightly greased griddle on medium heat.  Test to see if griddle is the right temperature by putting a small tester pancake in the center of the pan.  When the temperature is right, pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto the griddle. Turn pancakes over when bubbles form on the top and the bottoms are brown.  Cook until the second side is  golden brown.  Serve with your favorite toppings, like butter, syrup and maybe peanut butter.
