Cornmeal Griddle Cakes with Honey Butter Syrup
Yield: 6-8 griddle cakes
  • ½ cup ground cornmeal
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • about 4 tablespoons of butter for frying the cakes
For the Syrup
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons honey\
  1. In a bowl whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt. Make a small well in the middle and pour in the buttermilk, oil and egg. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Set batter aside while you preheat your skillet on medium low heat. Melt the butter for the syrup and stir in the honey until smooth.
  3. Melt about a tablespoon of butter in the skillet and cook the griddle cakes, 1-3 at a time depending on the size of your pan. When bubbles form and pop in the batter, carefully flip each cake and cook until golden.
  4. Repeat with more butter for each batch. Serve griddle cakes with honey butter syrup.
