Will's cornmeal pancakes

My kiddos love pancakes. Pancakes. Pancakes. Pancakes. The girls, especially, can devour a frightening number of pancakes. It seems impossible, a violation of some scientific principles, that so many pancakes could fit into a small child's stomach. And as I've mentioned before, my eldest loves cornmeal pancakes. To satisfy the calls for pancakes on weekend mornings, Will has been playing around with cornmeal pancake recipes, in search of the perfect pancake. This one's a winner. Light and with a lovely texture.

If your children would like to help make mom breakfast in bed, this would be a great, simple, delicious choice.

Will's cornmeal pancakes

1 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Mix milk and cornmeal in a medium bowl. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes so that the cornmeal can soften.

Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, pour in the wet ingredients, and mix well.

Cook in a lightly oiled skillet over medium heat.

Devour! (Freeze any extra pancakes for easy weekday breakfasts. Layer with paper towels to make it easier to use individual pancakes.)
