Saturday morning pancakes

I am on a bit of mission to do more cooking from my recipe boxes. This recipe has sat in the 'muffins and pancakes' box untried for 25 years. It is from a dear friend's neighbor who made them for us all those years ago.  She called them:

Healthy Pancakes (Amy's)


mix together:
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 T. sugar
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking powder
3/4 t. baking soda

beat lightly together and then stir into dry mixture:
1 egg
2 c. buttermilk
2 T. melted butter

I added some blueberries and raspberries.

Cook on a greased griddle.

These were great, and I won't wait another 25 years to make them! The recipe makes a lot of pancakes, plenty for Tom and I with enough batter left over for Matthew and Margaret to make pancakes for Hazel Nina.

You may go visit here to see what else is cooking this weekend.

  1. I like that touch of cornmeal and, of course, the fruit. I'll have to give these a try.

  3. I'm intrigued by these pancakes! The cornmeal must make for a fantastic texture. I'm definitely giving these a try!

  5. Mmmmm! I love pancakes. I have a recipe that I like using oatmeal and buttermilk, but no cornmeal. Will have to try this recipe sometime.

    1. I'm not sure if I have used oats in a batter. I'll look into that idea! There are other cornmeal pancakes under the 'recipes' tab at the top of the page.

  7. Look and sound good, Nan - and a bit of a reminder of a few recipes of my own that have been sitting for 20+ years.

  8. Like Jama, I have a recipe that calls for oats and buttermilk. Best. Pancakes. Ever. Although, my husband disagrees. He prefers regular buttermilk pancakes with flour. I like mine the next day, cold, with peanut butter. :)

  9. Yum! I am sure I'd love these, but would have to buy nearly everything - my larder and fridge are never stocked with so much choice :-)

  10. So nice to hear from you at Dolce Bellezza yesterday! I miss you, and don't get around as I ought any more. I mean, in blog land. At any rate, your pancakes looks delicious (and, the dog in your header made me call my husband for a view. He reminds me of our newest acquisiton: Humphrey, a lab with so much energy!). We've been enjoying gingerbread pancakes this fall, but I would like to try yours. Right now.
