Made from stone-ground cornmeal, these pancakes are light and crunchy. Make the pancakes immediately; this batter does not hold.

I thought these were really good. They reminded me a lot of corn bread pancakes. The pancakes are really small, but very filling. I used vanilla yogurt in the sauce and thought it was very delicious. My 19 month old really liked them too and gobbled them right up. I think they would also be great with a drizzle of honey instead of the yogurt sauce.
