Cornmeal Pancakes

13 Apr

So these do sound strange and different, but they are pretty damn tasty. I had some cornmeal left and was at a loss with what to do with it!! So pancakes, who doesn’t love pancakes?! These are more like scotch pancakes than normal.


150g Plain flour
150g Cornmeal
3tbsp Baking powder
4tbsp Caster sugar
2 Eggs
250ml Milk
3tsp Vanilla
75g Melted butter
2 Lemons zested

Estimated time: 20 minutes


Weigh and sift all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl ( don’t worry about sifting the cornmeal!). Leave a well in the middle of the mix so the liquid will be easier to mix in.


In another bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and lemon zest. These don’t have to be completely combined, it won’t make any difference when mixing.


Slowly mix the liquid into the well of the dry ingredients. Carefully stir this together, don’t worry if lumps form, you can beat them out later 🙂 once all of the liquid is added you can melt the butter in the microwave.


Once the butter is melted pour this into the batter and mix in, don’t worry that it’s a very thick batter, the cornmeal works as a thickening agent!!


Now get a frying pan and heat up a small amount of oil. Once the oil is hot, either using a spoon or an ice cream scoop add one spoonful of the batter into the pan. Leave this to cook on the one side for 1-2minutes before flipping over and cooking the other side. These are cooked when they are a nice golden colour 🙂


Keep going until all of the batter is used up, serve these with what ever syrup or ice cream you want/fancy and enjoy!!


These are slightly heavier than your normal pancakes, so I advise not to eat all at once :p these are very quick and easy to make, and just right for after a meal or at midday with tea!! Everyone will love these, the cornmeal adds a beautiful colour to them making them that bit different and special 🙂
