Corn Pancakes

Before you think this is a mistake, let me tell you why. Don and I are trying a NO pasta, NO potatoes, NO rice, NO flour and NO white sugar (as in cakes and cookies) regimen. We have been eating cornbread now for two weeks. Upon returning home this morning from Church, Don said let’s get inventive. I threw out (teasingly, of course) make waffles or pancakes. With that he altered his Mom’s recipe for pancakes and the result was absolutely amazing and darn good too!

In a medium size bowl combine :

  • 1/2 cup corn flour,
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal,
  • 1 Tbsp. Baking Powder,
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar,
  • pinch of salt.


Set this aside.

In a separate bowl, beat one egg. Now alternately add 3/4 cup buttermilk with the flour mixture into the beaten egg. Mix until smooth. Don used a whisk; maybe that is why is was so good. Cook like any other pancake and add your butter and syrup.

Now you know why we are so married. He’s a wonderful; cook. Yup!
