Having seen tons of pictures of delicious-looking pancakes last week on my food porn sites, it put me in the mood to make some. I am not a fan of plain ol’ regular pancakes, though, because I find them to be dry, dull, flavorless and only good as a vehicle for syrup.

Whilst looking in my pantry for inspiration, I spotted my neglected (but not expired) box of yellow cornmeal. Ta-da! Thus the cornmeal pancake idea was born and executed. They are a heartier, more substantial version of a regular buttermilk pancake, with a texture similar to buckwheat pancakes. They’re also pretty filling, so a few go a long way.
