Most days, we are rushed in the morning. Whether it’s getting ready for work, school or various activities, we rarely have time to sit down to enjoy breakfast together.

However, in our house, Sunday morning is all about pancakes.  It’s the one day where we can all sit down together and enjoy a lazy brunch together.

I usually make my great-grandmother’s pancake recipe but this past week, I decided to try these Corn Pancakes.

To make the recipe, I used P.A.N. Cornmeal.  It’s a must-have pantry staple in my kitchen.

P.A.N. Cornmeal is the number one cornmeal in South America and has been around for many years.  Only recently has it been making its way into American kitchens.

You can find lots of quick and easy recipes from P.A.N. Cornmeal here.

These pancakes are quick and easy to make.  I used the simple process of mixing the dry ingredients together in one bowl, the wet ingredients together in another bowl and then I just mixed them together.

The batter was thick so I used a spatula to spread it out a bit on the griddle.

You would think these pancakes would be heavy, but they were far from it.  They were light and fluffy.  But my favorite part, was the texture from the corn meal.  The little bit of crispy bite. Pancake perfection!

And, my family loved them, too.  I think we have a new family favorite in our house!
