Blue Corn Hotcakes


1 1/2 cups blue cornmeal
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup granulated maple sugar
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1 cup low-fat (1%%) milk
6 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
2 ripe bananas, for garnish
Red Chile Honey (see re


In separate medium bowl, whisk eggs well. Whisk in buttermilk, milk, butter and almond extract until well combined. Pour liquid into dry ingredients, whisking until mixture is moistened and combined. Using rubber spatula, mix in blueberries.
Heat heavy, medium skillet over medium-low heat. Lightly coat pan with oil. Pour 1/4 cup batter per pancake into skillet. Cook until small holes appear on surface of hotcakes, 3 to 5 minutes. Cook until hotcakes are firm in center when lightly pressed with your fingertip. Transfer hotcakes to plate. Repeat, until remaining batter is used up. Serve hotcakes as they are made, so they remain crisp.
For garnish, cut bananas lengthwise into thin slices, or slice crosswise. Arrange slices on each hotcake. Drizzle 2 to 3 teaspoon Red Chile Honey over warm hotcakes and serve.




These pancakes, which are remarkably crisp outside and tender inside, are hearty enough to serve anytime. You can make this recipe into waffles if you prefer.
