"Very good. I used gluten free flour, 1/4 cup sugar, less salt, & vanilla extract. The batter spread out so they were pretty thin but that was fine with my hungry husband and me. :)"

"Just enough cornmeal to give a wonderful flavor, but not so much as to weigh you down for the next five hours,"

"Nice crunch to them like you'd expect from cornmeal. And very light!"

"My family and I enjoyed these very much! The pancakes were light and had a slight chewiness from the cornmeal. They soaked up the real VT maple syrup that we poured over them. Great recipe!"
