Still, I do enjoy making breakfast at home, when I have time. I do enjoy making homemade pancakes (not from a box mix). I have a nice assortments of pancake recipes that I have shared with all of you--from Swedish pancakes to German Pancakes-- and even Lemon-Blueberry Ricotta pancakes. My Best Pancake recips has remained the top favorite among my men, and I have to agree that they are fluffy and delicious! But, now, I think these pancakes are going to be moving up in rank as our favorites.
Food Network's Pioneer Woman featured Ree's Cornmeal Pancakes with Blueberry syrup grabbed by attention. (I once made a Cornmeal and Ricotta waffle recipe that was memorable, in a good way-- though a bit more work.) Cornmeal pancakes? Yes! The batter uses everyday ingredients that you have on hand-- flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder, pure vanilla and milk.
From start to finish, breakfast was on the table in 30 minutes.
TASTING NOTES: By the smile on my husband's face, I could tell that these pancakes were a hit. These pancakes were surprisingly tender and fluffy. The cornmeal added a subtle crunch and a perfect balance of corn flavor. The vanilla extract added a little sweetness, but not too much. The sweet-tart raspberry compote gave a some zip and pretty color to the breakfast. I would say that these are 100% husband approved, as he went back for seconds. I'll be making these again, for sure.
Good Eats! As always, a printable recipe is at the very end of this post...keep scrolling!
