Recent Activity:
  • 1   cup 
    all-purpose flour
  • 3/4  cup 
  • 1   tablespoon 
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons 
    baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
  • 2   
    slightly beaten eggs
  • 1   cup 
  • 1   teaspoon 
    cooking oil
    Nonstick spray coating

    finely shredded orange peel or lemon peel
  • 1   cup 
    orange juice
  • 2   tablespoons 
    lemon juice
  • 1/2  cup 
In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a small mixing bowl combine eggs, milk, and oil. Add all at once to flour mixture and stir just until blended but still slightly lumpy.
Spray a griddle with nonstick spray coating. Preheat griddle over medium heat. For each pancake pour about 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook over medium heat until pancakes are golden brown (1 to 2 minutes per side). Turn the pancakes to second sides when they have bubbly surfaces and slightly dry edges. Makes 5 servings (2 pancakes each).
Citrus Syrup:

In a medium saucepan combine the orange peel or lemon peel, orange juice, lemon juice, and sugar. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until reduced to 3/4 cup, stirring occasionally. Serve warm or cool. Cover and refrigerate remaining syrup for up to 1 week. Makes 3/4 cup.
