Cornmeal Pancakes - Recipe

Sunday Breakfast = Pancakes

Normally we have buttermilk pancakes but I had been wanting to try something new.
When I saw this recipe I knew exactly what I would be whipping up.
They were light, fluffy and slightly crispy on the outside.
Quite easy to make and such a joy to eat.
Perfect pancakes when you want a slightly different pancake.
