Number of Servings: 3


    1/3 c. whole-grain cornmeal
    3/4 c. boiling water
    1/2 c. orange juice
    1 egg
    2 Tbsp sugar
    zest of 1 orange
    1/2 c. all purpose flour
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 Tbsp canola oil
    1/4 tsp vanilla


1. In large mixing bowl, whisk cornmeal and water until thickened.

2. Whisk in juice, then beat in egg, sugar, and zest until blended.

3. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda.

4. Add dry ingredients to cornmeal mixture and stir until just combined. Stir in oil and vanilla.

5. Heat nonstick or well-seasoned cast-iron griddle or skillet over medium heat. When griddle is hot enough that water droplets jump before evaporating. Ladle batter (3 tablespoons per pancake) onto griddle. Cook until edges are dry and tops are covered with bubbles, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.

6. Flip pancakes and cook until golden brown on second side and cooked through, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes more. Repeat with remaining batter.

Serving Size: 3 - 4 inch pancakes. Recipe makes 9 pancakes.

Number of Servings: 3.5

    Husband said they are a favorite pancake. I skipped the oil & used nonfat Greek yogurt,1 tablespoon but did use the whole egg, rather then my customary egg white swap. Used King Arthur white whole wheat flour and fresh squeezed orange juice. Will do often. - 1/12/18
