Rachael of pizzarossa was our August 2012 Daring Cook hostess and she challenged us to broaden our knowledge of cornmeal! Rachael provided us with some amazing recipes and encouraged us to hunt down other cornmeal recipes that we’d never tried before – opening our eyes to literally 100s of cuisines and 1000s of new-to-us recipes!
The daring cooks challenge this month was to cook something with a cornmeal batter. And that is a challenge, because I don’t like the most recipes with cornmeal. Except for bread, but that is a recipe for the daring bakers instead of the daring cooks. Rachel was so kind to give a few examples and so I got the recipe for fluffy buttermilk pancakes.
That’s quite an American recipe. In America pancakes are eaten as breakfast, but that’s not very usual in the Netherlands. We eat pannenkoeken, which looks like it, but it’s still very different and we eat it as lunch. So I though it is a nice recipe for the challenge.
And I add maple syrup, which also is quite American.
The pancakes did taste very good, so I can see from this day that in my recipe box there is a great recipe with cornmeal (thanks to Rachel and a blog: fullcirclefoodie).
