Buttermilk Cornbread Pancakes

Oh, pancakes.  Nothing says 'it's the weekend' more strongly than homemade pancakes.  Made these last sunday and happily drowned them in maple syrup.  Cam ate his topped with two sunny eggs.  He's so sensible.  

Makes 6 pancakes.   

Cornbread Pancakes

1 cup cornmeal

1/4 cup all purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

pinch salt

1 egg

1 cup buttermilk

high heat oil, as needed for cooking

Whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Whisk in egg and buttermilk until just combined and flour is hydrated.   

Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat.  Oil surface if necessary.  Pour 1/2 cup ladlefuls of batter onto the hot skillet.  Leave enough room for flipping.  When the edges bubble, flip.  Cook until the bottom side is light brown.  

Serve warm with maple syrup and butter.
