Menu Description: "These fluffy, moist and savory pancakes are made with just the right amount of cornmeal."

If you like the taste of fresh cornbread, you will definitely dig this new twist on pancakes brought to us from America's largest flapjack factory. Cornmeal, plus extra helpings of sugar and butter, are added to delicious buttermilk pancake batter for a clone that will turn on the smiles. This new breakfast specialty is easy to make, crazy delicious, and any leftovers will freeze well for several months (check out the Tidbits below).

      1. Spray a large skillet or griddle with nonstick spray. Preheat to medium/low heat.

      2. Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.

      3. In another medium bowl, blend eggs and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add milk, buttermilk, and melted butter and mix well.

      4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with your mixer until smooth. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes.

      5. Spoon 1/4 cup portions of the batter onto the griddle and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until brown. Serve pancakes hot with butter and maple syrup on the side.
      Makes 16 to 18 pancakes.
      Tidbits: You can freeze leftover pancakes in stacks of 2 or 3 in sandwich-size zip-top bags. When you're ready to reheat, simply take the frozen stack of pancakes out of the bag, put them on a plate, and then microwave for one minute on high, or until hot.
