Sunday Supper - Orange-Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

Orange-Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

Mix together:
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup white flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Beat together:
1 egg
1 cup orange juice, preferably freshly squeezed  (perfect because this time of year I squeeze a glass every day. Recipe also called for zest of one orange, but I didn't use it.)

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk
2 tablespoons melted and cooled butter (the recipe called for teaspoons, but I misread it and 2 tablespoons worked well)

Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients, and mix together. Don't over mix. 
Stir in one cup frozen, not thawed, blueberries.

We bought an electric frypan and it was a lot easier to use than last week's stovetop griddle. Sprayed it with cooking spray and heated it to 350ยบ F. 

Cook until bubbles form and then flip. Cook a bit longer. 

The recipe came from 

These were excellent pancakes! Highly recommended. 


  1. Sitting here waiting for the alleged snow storm to hit us - though the last time I checked Weather online, it said only an inch of snow. Quite a let down from the hyper snow map which showed up just a couple of days ago. Looks like we might get lucky here in NJ. At any rate, Nan, I love anything made with cornmeal. These pancakes look delish. Maybe I'll give them a try. I wonder if my granddaughter would like them - she's SO picky. But she loves berries. :)

    1. They are 'delish!'
      My word for picky is discerning! She may well grow up to be a gourmet:
      a connoisseur of good food; a person with a discerning palate.
      rather than a gourmand:
      a person who enjoys eating and often eats too much.
      signed Nan, who was always called a 'picky eater.' :<)))

    2. Yeah, Nan! I'm with you. 'Discerning' is the word for little Julianna Belle.

  2. Oh, those look DELICIOUS! I love orange flavor in just about anything, and it seems like the cornmeal would add a good texture. Need to bookmark this recipe.

    1. They really are wonderful. I love the combo of blueberries and oj.

  5. Now that I've written out the recipe, remembered that I meant to say that your food photography is wonderful -- professional quality.

    1. Oh, if you could see all the ones I delete! pure luck my dear!
