Blue Corn Pancakes

Posted by alicia on April 27, 2013

Today’s hint for anniversary week: A morning classic with a southwestern twist

Mitch’s guess: Egg loaf

WRONG! This makes the second time Mitch has guessed egg loaf this week.  How depressing.  It is obviously time to start branching out as Mitch seems to think that egg loaf has dominated our morning-time relationship.  Oh, fabulous.

The real answer is Blue Corn Pancakes. Since we are now living in the southwest–hey, Baby Cupcake is developing a desert-vocabulary with words like dirt, rocks, lizard, sunny, windy, and ouch (for tumbleweeds)–it seemed appropriate to go with this new favorite of southwestern-style pancakes this morning.

Pass the syrup. please

Blue Corn Pancakes

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup blue cornmeal
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • pinch salt

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Spoon onto a buttered skillet over medium-low heat and flip just like regular pancakes. Serve with syrup.

    These look delicious! Where do you buy blue cornmeal? Do you have to special order it?

      I found it at our Natural Grocers so I’m betting that Whole Foods has it!
