Polenta pancakes

    15 min

    If you love polenta cake, you'll love these pancakes. The texture is lovely and the polenta adds extra flavour and a touch of sweetness. Yummy served with bacon and maple syrup.

    • 25g caster sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Whisk flour, polenta, sugar, baking powder, bicarb and salt in a large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, eggs and butter in a separate bowl. Stir the liquid mixture into the dry mixture just until smooth.
    2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. For each pancake, pour 4 tablespoons (60ml) batter into pan and cook until edges are dry and bubbles appear on the surface, about 1 1/2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 1 minute. Continue with remaining batter.

    Heavenly served warm and drizzled with honey. My husband told me I should stop making regular corn bread and make these pancakes instead. Buttery, not too sweet, and perfect in texture/thickness. I followed the recipe as listed except for subbing 1/4 cup Skim Milk (because I only had a cup of buttermilk left in the fridge). I also sifted my dry ingredients before mixing with the wet, and used a nonstick griddle heated to 350. Definitely a keeper recipe!  -  09 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Wow these were good. The consistency was awesome. I have celiac so I used gluten free Pillsbury all purpose flour and lemon juice with regular milk to make sour milk. Otherwise perfect. It taste like butter lol.  -  28 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
