Food Blog Friday: Blueberry Orange Cornmeal Pancakes

Blueberry Orange Cornmeal Pancakes on White Plate

I was really craving pancakes for breakfast yesterday morning when I remembered these Blueberry Orange Cornmeal Pancakes I read about on Satisfied,  a new-to-me food blog written by Chef Louise Mellor.  I’m so glad I had bookmarked the recipe because these pancakes were fantastic!

These are buttermilk pancakes spiked with vanilla and orange zest, and studded with fresh blueberries.  A small amount of cornmeal adds a fun texture to the batter but doesn’t weigh it down.  The pancakes turned out light, fluffy, and flavorful – exactly what I was looking for.

But if pancakes aren’t your thing, how about Sumac Roasted Chicken Breasts with Chickpea Couscous with Apricots, Currants, and Cherry Vinaigrette? Or perhaps dessert is what you’re craving – here’s a recipe for Coffee Hazelnut Brownies with Salted Caramel Sauce that should satisfy.  Have you been looking for a great fresh strawberry ice cream recipe?  I know I have.  Well, check out this ultra-rich Strawberry Buttermilk Ice Cream.  It’s been added to my list of recipes to try soon!

I hope all those delicious-sounding recipes haven’t distracted you from the pancakes.  They were wonderful and I don’t want you to forget to bookmark the recipe.

    So glad you liked them… I’ve been cooking for people for years, lost count of how many… yet even today knowing someone is enjoying my food feels good! Thanks for the encouragement, I’m smiling right now eating cous cous over my computer…

    I have some blue cornmeal in my pantry…I might try using it in these pancakes. I love a good cornmeal crunch!
    Hmm…new food blogs? Dorie Greenspan has had a few posts on new food blogs that I’ve enjoyed. You might check out her last few posts. But your food blog is new to me and I’m enjoying it very much! Thanks! 🙂
    I just saw someone else recommended Georgia’s site. I just found it today too! Good news travels fast!

    Those pancakes look amazing. I’m a real pancake freak and, for the longest time, couldn’t find any I liked here in Bangkok. Then…….

    Finally stumbled across some at a tiny food stall at Chatuchak Weekend Market. Banana pancakes and an iced latte. Total cost? $1.60 🙂

    Wow, I have to try this recipe. Pancakes are amazing and I loves me some for sure. I will see if I can lower the calories a bit and maintain a healthy nutritional balance, but these seem on the money as they are. They’ll be great with my favorite low calorie syrup. Thanks for the recipe!

    I love pancakes. I’ve been on a pancake kick for the last few weeks. I know what’s for breakfast tomorrow. Oh, and I love the idea of featuring other blogs. Brilliant as usual.

    I love your photos, those pancakes look incredible and just about perfect 🙂 Whenever I try to make pancakes the bottom always gets browned too unevenly, can’t figure out why, LOL.
