Given the choice between pancakes and waffles, I will almost always choose waffles. In fact, these cheddar cornmeal pancakes were originally headed in that direction until I realized my waffle maker is broken and I need a new one. So pancakes they are.
These are pretty easy to whip up, and make a quick and easy side dish or lunch option. You could add some tuna to the batter to make a more substantial dinner if you don’t want to go to any more trouble or serve with a small salad. Or you could always top with something — barbecue or chili, or like a favorite local restaurant near me, fried artichoke hearts. These have kind of a cornbread texture, with pockets of sharp cheddar. I topped mine with hot sauce and some leftover homemade ranch dressing I had in the fridge. It’s an easy, yet satisfying, meal. What could be better?
