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.

Corn Meal Pancakes

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

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 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!

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!
