I think I discovered this one by accident. I am always looking for new breakfast ideas and since I always have corn meal around I wanted to see what I could do. The best part about this recipe is that you can add anything you want. This time I used blueberries but you can add bananas, strawberries or chocolate. You can even make them savory as a fun dinner side by adding a little cheese or even sauté onions or peppers.


(Note- this recipe makes one serving. Multiply all ingredients for more)

1/4 cups corn meal
1 egg
1/8 cup milk ( any kind)
* 1/4 blueberries ( feel free to change it up with different fruit, chocolate, cheese or even veggies )
1/2 Tbsp sugar optional*

Mix all ingredients together and allow it to stand for a few minutes. Place batter in spoonfuls on a hot well oiled or buttered pan. Cook on one side for about two minutes until brown and then flip and repeat on opposite side. Serve hot with syrup, jelly and or butter.
