    This is so easy to make and such a good breakfast/bunch and dinner meal. Add cut up fruits to the side completes the meal.

    I use to have corn meal pancakes at my great aunt's house. The touch of honey is a great change. I never ran across a recipe as close to hers until now. Very good.

    Cornmeal Pancakes

    Lori Ingram from Bakersfield, CA

    I was delightfully suprised how tasty and filling these pancakes were. Even when using 2 tablespoons of constarch, as a quick egg substitution for one egg (courtesy of pioneerthinking.com) The recipe went well... FYI: the pancake batter will be dense, and somewhat dry, until you add the 1/2 cup (4oz.) of milk at the end. I recomend giving this recipe a try.

    Interesting twist on old favorite!

    Laurie Gales from BELPRE, KS

    Very good! I didn't have evaporated milk so had to use a regular milk (used a little less) but they still turned out okay. They'd probably be more fluffy with evaporated. I look forward to trying the leftovers in the next few days for my quick breakfasts!

    Corn Meal Cakes

    debbra Alexander from ALBANY, NY

    I remember my grandma making corn meal cakes many years ago. I have not had them in many years until my mother made them and i watched her. Then i found the recipe here and have been making them ever since. I make a bunch and let them cool and put them in a plastic container in the frig and when i feel like having one i microware for a few seconds and pour on a little syrup and i am good to go.

    Added fiber

    Shannon Denison from SPANISH FORT, AL

    For additional fiber I replace half of the flour with whole wheat flour.

    D ILES from MASCOUTAH, IL

    Gosh, how I loved cornmeal pancakes as a child. My granny made these for us hot off the griddle, and boy oh boy, they were to die for! This recipe brought back wonderful memories as well as good eating.

    Corn Meal Pancakes

    Roberta Sambol from SUN CITY WEST, AZ

    Made them this morning for brunch for my husband and myself. I have used corn meal before in pancakes, but not in this quantity. This is a bit too much. Don't think I'll use the recipe again. Was good to try, however.

    Just Okay

    LINDA MAQUINALEZ from HELENDALE, CA

    I liked them with just a little syrup, but my children and husband didn't care for them at all.

    Not just for breakfast!

    CHRISHANTHI SQUIRES from HANNIBAL, NY

    The cheese and onion version, or plain with some chopped chives or whatever fresh herbs you have handy, makes a nice side-dish for lunch or supper, too.

    I learned something new

    Cyndy B Wilber from Ravena, NY

    I have made corn meal pancakes before by simply adding the corn meal and flour together. But by par-boiling the corn meal before adding the flour, I got a smoother consistency with the pancakes. Very good.

    Michelle from Spokane, WA

    I had cornmeal pancakes at a resturant before and ever since then I have wanted to make my own. I was very pleased that this recipe was as delicious as what I had at the resturant. What makes this recipe even better is it is easy. I will definitely make these over and over again.

    Cornmeal pancakes

    Joy Barnhill from potlatch, ID

    These are really good and very filling. We like to eat corn bread with peanut butter and honey. This was great as we could have the peanut butter and honey on our pancakes :) and it was almost as good at having corn bread. Will make these again. Though I did add a bit more corn meal to make them thicker.

    You can't go wrong with this recipe for great tasting pancakes in the morning. The cornmeal is a pleasant change, and not at all overpowering. Add some butter and warm syrup and voila.... absolutely wonderful.

    Corn Meal Pancakes

    Katie Millett from St. Louis, MO

    The pancakes were a nice change from the other recipes. I liked the touch of cinnamon. I added a little more flour and little less corn meal. It is a recipe that I would use again.

    Cornmeal Pancakes

    Corinne Portteus from Newark, CA

    I thought the addition of cinnamon is a nice touch. I'm surprised, though that there was absolutely no oil or shortening. Also, I feel that the pancakes could be improved by separating the egg white from the yolk, beating it separately and folding it back into the mixture.

    Too Heavy

    Pat Weltch from Greensboro, NC

    We found these pancakes to heavy and dry. The idea is good but this recipe needs some work in my opinion.

    Breakfast Treat or Not!!!

    Mary Ellen from Gahanna, OH

    Corn meal pancakes are great at TJ's but I've often wanted to make them at home. I'm so glad I found the recipe! My Mom has always loved fried corn meal mush. Now I'm going to treat her to corn meal pancakes.

    Brunch Bonus

    Joyce Terry from Providence, RI

    The Cheddar and Onion version of these Cornmeal Pancakes are excellent when rolled around pure pork sausage for hearty Pigs in Blankets as a light dinner or brunch entree.
