These pancakes are light and fluffy yet sturdy enough to stand up to whatever you choose to add to them. The cornmeal gave these a nice texture, a little more solid than a pancake without cornmeal. I prefer my pancakes thinner, so I gave these a 4 instead of a 5.

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!

These were soo good! I was really not expecting it to come out so well. I did add the 1 tsp of vanilla extract as many other reviewers suggest and I think it did help. The pancakes were not grainy like many things that have cornmeal and were a beautiful even brown. Will definitely make again

Great texture and taste. Makes a huge batch!! The left overs heated up great the next day. I popped them in the toaster oven on warm for 15 min and flipped half-way thru.
