This weekend I made pancakes for everyone. They were light and fluffy and blueberry-topped. But they were of the non-gluten-free variety so I had to make some of my own, too. I had some left over cornmeal from corn bread that I made so I decided to make cornmeal based pancakes, sometimes called johnny cakes or griddle cakes.
The recipe I used called for buttermilk but since I didn't have any I used a substitution of milk and vinegar. I wish I hadn't though because the vinegar imparted a too-strong flavor on my cakes. Also I wish I had upped the liquid because the cakes are a little dense. But besides those minor things they were really satisfying! I enjoyed them with copious amounts of maple syrup. Yum!
