Pancakes with Cornmeal

I've recently come into possession of two large bags of cornmeal. I asked my boyfriend to pick up some cornmeal so that I could use it to dust my baking trays when I'm baking bread. He brought home two bags.

Hence, every day I walk by my kitchen I try to think of a use for the cornmeal. Corn bread is just too easy, I'm looking for something a little more day-to-day and challenging.

Therefore, I threw some in my pancakes.

2 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 tbsp oil

1 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Mix the wet ingredients, then add the dry and fry up like you normally would. I just divided my batch in 2 and made two massive pancakes.

This recipe produced pancakes that were definitely more filling then what I'm used to, so next time I'm going to up the amount of cornmeal in them, hoping to phase out the flour entirely.
I wonder if baking powder is gluten free? If so, this has potential for my mother....

When I was a kid my mother used to make pancakes with cornmeal, white flour, and whole wheat flour instead of just plain white flour. Other people's pancakes never tasted as good as my mom's. I don't eat grains anymore, but the thought of cornbread makes my mouth water.

Also, baking powder IS gluten free! :)

I really did love these, they're fun to tinker with :P

I've done a lot of gluten research since this post, thank goodness for baking powder!
