Honey Cornmeal Pancakes with Blackberry Maple Syrup

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • butter for cooking pancakes
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries

Instructions

  • To make the sauce, combine the water and cornstarch in a small saucepan until dissolved. Add the syrup and berries, and bring to a boil. Continue to cook until berries are mushy and have integrated into the sauce (about 5 minutes).
  • For the pancakes, mix milk, egg, vanilla, honey, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Add the cornmeal and whole wheat flour and mix until just combined (it’s OK if the batter is a little bit lumpy).
  • Heat a cast iron skillet or griddle (or other heavy skillet) on medium high heat and melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in it.
  • Add the pancake batter 1/2 cup at a time to the skillet. Flip the pancake when the edges start to solidify and small bubbles begin to appear.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more butter for each batch.
  • Serve pancakes with blackberry syrup.
