So this morning I tried out a substitute for our beloved Saturday morning pancakes:
1 c cornmeal
1 t salt
1 1/2 c boiling water
1 T butter
1/2 c fat free milk
a bit of butter and oil for frying
In a medium bowl combine cornmeal and salt. Add boiling water and butter. Stir until smooth and add milk. Stir to cool enough to add the eggs without them cooking from the heat of the batter. Blend well. Fry over medium to medium high heat in a good nonstick skillet. My pancakes were about 2 T of batter each for smaller sized ones. Serve with unsweetened applesauce.
