    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.

    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.

    Made it just like the recipe (except I made my own buttermilk with milk and vinegar) and they were wonderful with pinto beans, fresh diced onions, and fried ham. Yum! The only thing different was that I halved the recipe because it's just my husband and I. And we still have leftovers for tomorrow!  -  19 Dec 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I made recipe with all ingredients, with exception of using milk and vinegar for buttermilk. They turned out nice and fluffy but the taste was a little bland for me. I wanted more buttery sweetness . It the maple syrup and butter made them good .  -  13 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
