Recipes: Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes
Ingredients (Serves 8 people)
2 cups of all-purpose flour
2 cups of cornmeal
8 tablespoons of brown sugar
4 teaspoons of baking powder
2 teaspoons of salt
2 teaspoons of baking soda
4 cups of buttermilk
1 cup of low-fat milk
4 tablespoons of unsalted, melted butter
4 large beaten eggs
2 cups of blueberries
1 cup of of maple syrup
In a large bowl, put the all-purpose flour, the cornmeal, 4 tablespoons of brown sugar, the baking powder, the salt and the baking soda and stir well for 2 minutes. Put aside. In another bowl, add the buttermilk, the low-fat milk, the unsalted, melted butter and the beaten eggs and stir them well together for 2 minutes. Put aside.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Heat a big nonstick skillet over low-medium heat. Put the blueberries in the skillet and add the remaining 4 tablespoons of brown sugar. Brush the skillet with melted butter. Sprinkle with the sugared blueberries, about 8-10 sugared blueberries per pancake. Cook until the edges are set, for 2-3 minutes. Then flip and cook each pancake for 4 minutes until they get a golden brown color. Repeat with the remaining butter as well as the remaining blueberries. In order for the pancakes to remain warm, put them in a baking sheet in the oven. Once they are all ready, spray them with the maple syrup and serve immediately.
If you want to cut back on calories, you can substitute brown sugar with an artificial sweetener . Make sure to use half the amount of the artificial sweetener though, as artificial sweeteners are a lot sweeter than sugar. If you chose to use salted butter, then you should not use any salt, to avoid making your pancakes salty. If you don’t like maple syrup, you can replace it with corn syrup or coconut oil.
