Cornmeal Red Currant Pancakes

Dear Readers,

I hope you all had a nice weekend.

Here it was rainy again which was just the right weather for trying out another new currant recipe: Cornmeal Red Currant Pancakes. I found the recipe by Aimée at  Under the High Chair blog, which was an adaptation of the Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes in Martha Stewart Living (June 09) .

The original recipe included a Red Currant Syrup which also looked delicious, but I chose to go with the easier Aunt Jemima.

As I didn’t have the cornmeal it required, I decided to go with durum wheat semolina. I have no idea what the difference is, but I loved the extra flavor it gave to the pancakes. Usually I use white flour for my pancakes but I know I will be using this recipe as a base for many other fruity combinations in the future.

One thing I particularly liked about this recipe,  is that as you drop the berries into the cooking pancakes, they don’t get squashed and turn the batter pink. However, this caused a little trouble with my frying pan, but eventually we found a solution: not flipping them until the very end.

Of course, I also made some ‘plane Jane’ ones too, for a slightly picky someone, and even those were delicious.

Well I hope you too will give the recipe a try! Let me know how it goes if you do!

I am always on the search for the perfect pancake recipe, so please let me know if you have any you would recommend!

Have a great week!
