Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Very simple to make and very filling. The cornmeal griddle cakes are great with just butter and maple syrup or you can try them with flavored syrup. Strawberry is very good with this recipe as well."

  1. Pour cornmeal into a large bowl; cover with boiling water. Let stand until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour, sugar, melted butter, baking powder, and salt. Mix in milk and egg until batter is smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly greased griddle over medium heat. Drop spoonfuls of batter onto the griddle and cook until edges are dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.

I thought these were really good and I liked them more than I thought I would. They were very light with a subtle corn taste. They made a great breakfast!

I made it just like it said. It has a nice flavor and was good with both eggs and also jam and sour cream .
