E: Cornmeal Pancakes

Hope your Monday is off to a good start! I just wanted to drop in to tell you a few things:

1. Again, thank you all so much for your sweet words on my pregnancy update.

2. Josh had his friend Jeremy over for dinner last night and I made up Heather’s incredible cornmeal pancakes.  Since I didn’t have any cake flour on hand, I placed 2 tablespoons corn starch in the bottom of a 1 cup measuring dish and then filled the rest with all purpose flour. Otherwise, I completely followed her recipe. I topped the pancakes with bananas, blackberries, and syrup. So good!

3. Have you guys tried any of the new Chobani flavors? We have tried the black cherry and the kids honey-nana and are VERY impressed. A full review of the new Chobani flavors will be coming to Itzy’s Kitchen soon.

Enjoy your week! Any exciting plans?

Great idea to use cornmeal in the pancakes! I bet it gave them such an added boost of flavor!

I can't wait for my new Chobani flavors to come. They should be here this week!

Glad you had a good weekend.

Mmm I am craving pancakes now! But come to think of it, I am always in the mood for breakfast foods! I do the same cornstarch/ap flour substitute too when I am out of cake flour. Have a fabulous week!

Gen said...

Those pancakes look AWESOME!!!!!
Nothing major planned for this week....mostly just school! =P

Lee said...

I know those Chobanis are for kids, but I wish they were bigger! I won them once in a giveaway like a year ago.

Heather said...

We had pancakes for breakfast on Saturday (trying to nurse Jay back to health!). I need to try the cornmeal version! :)

Susan said...

I'm a bit late to the party, but THANK YOU for sharing your pregnancy progress with us! You are a gorgeous mama (Yes I can call you a mama already because technically you are!).

I'm working on a recipe for cornmeal pancakes right now, since cornbread and pancakes are two of my faves. Yours looks delectable.

Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg said...

Ooooh, I LOVE cornmeal pancakes! Great textures!

I'm dying to try the lemon chobani, but we don't have it yet!

Heather (Where's the Beach) said...

Cool tip on the cornstarch/AP flour. Can you believe I've never tried Chobani???

Melissa @ For the Love of Health said...

The belly is so adorable :-) I love a pregnant woman's belly. I was home at Christmas and my friend was a few weeks away from having her baby and I just loved it!

Amazing looking pancakes! My bf is a pancake-a-holic! I will note this recipe for him!

Have a great Monday!

Yum- your pancakes look great! I have honestly never made real pancakes because I'm pretty sure I would destroy them into blobs. I do have some new flour to try and will make some now that I'm craving them!

I am very anxious this week as I am taking a hypnosis class for weight loss. I am not sure what to expect. My mom quit smoking with hypnosis, so fingers crossed!

That honey na-na looks so good! I wonder if Wee Burb would dig it.
