Baking with Bob - very yummy pancakes

Todays choice of snack was picked by the kids themselves, Bob was so taken with pancakes last week he wanted them again, but not to stand still or do the same thing twice I looked for a different type of recipe.

I have cornmeal in the cupboard from making biscuits a while ago, so looked for a recipe for cornmeal pancakes, but most of them seem to want you to add boiling water to the cornmeal etc but this didn't appeal with children involved. Have also been studying various pancake recipes this last week, and have sort of cobbled together the high points from others I have looked at and adapted it my own way - so here goes.

I mixed 1/2 cup cornmeal, 1/2 cup doves farm rice flour and 1/2 cup doves farm self raising flour with 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

cooked and cooling

eaten and enjoyed
In a separate bowl we melted 2 tablespoons vitalite and added 2 "eggs" made from egg replacer, 1/2 cup natural soya yoghurt ( home made) , 1 cup Rice Dreams vanilla milk and 2 tablespoons of Tate and Lyle golden syrup.

we then added dry into wet, stirred thoroughly to get a mixture that you could leave a trail on top of, and then cooked in a frying pan with oil in.

 These gave us, in my opinion, the lightest, airiest, tastiest pancakes I have made in many a year, and I would say if you want to copy just one of my recipes then this has to be the first you try. The kids thought they were very yummy, last weeks were just yummy.

The vanilla from the milk was the dominant flavour, and the cornmeal gave them a very nice yellow colour, and I assume the addition of the yoghurt help to make them airy.

This is a reviewpost but the findings are not influenced by that, they are my opinions on the products.


  1. These sound yummy, will have to try and make some with my son, I promised I would make pancakes with him.

  2. I'd never have thought of adding yoghurt, that's a really good idea. Perhaps we will have pancakes for lunch! :O) Bob looks to be enjoying those!

  3. well girls please come back and let us know how you get on, even if its not allergy free baking and you just try normal with yoghurt.

  4. There was some of these left when I collected the kids yesterday morning, so I helped myself to a couple, which became supper last night. I can see why the kids like them - they are very very tasty, and both kids have asked that I make them at home.

  5. Ohh yummy. They look better than last weeks ones. Hard to do, elaine. They would be nice with yoghurt & fruit, delicious :) xx

    i think if you keep finding all these receipes from everywhere that perhaps you should cobble them togethere to make a cookbook for people with certain intolerances :)

  7. @fuzzy-bear - that might be an idea, not finding them but inventing them as I go along, trial and error.
    @Charlie, make them take a photo hun and I will add it
