“Old-fashioned corn meal pancake type corn bread. My mother's best friend who owned a little terrific hole in the wall restaurant gave me this recipe. I think it is wonderful.”

These were really good but I would cut back the salt next time. We did these with syrup and some with honey butter. I think they would be awesome along side some chili.



This recipe is...interesting. But surprisingly good when topped with the right toppings! I was a little taken aback by how they cooked up - not like a real pancake at all! I was very leery to try these, but I topped them with some berries, whipped cream and pure maple syrup and I can honestly say these were amazing with those toppings! These cakes just soaked up the syrup and berry juices so each bite was sweet and delicious! Reminds me ever so slightly of the pancakes that my Grandma made when I was growing up - thin and absorbent!

I did not like this recipe. While the cakes tasted alright the problem is the batter is all liquid with a little bit of cornmeal. Yes this does make the cakes once it gets hot and everything but controlling the batter while cooking it is a pain and the batter in the middle of the cakes will not cook until you flip it making a horrible mess every time you flip it. Gave it a 2 for taste horrible for everything else.
