Cornmeal Pancake


Pancake is hubby’s favorite weekend breakfast.  I had already Posted Eggless Pancake and Eggless Whole Wheat Strawberry pancake. Had yellow cornmeal in pantry so tried pancake with yellow corn meal and whole wheat. It is healthy and yummy breakfast for adults and kids. My toddler loved this pancake.

On a different note, TraditionallyModernFood is in Sulekha:-) I was excited when sulekha approached me to post recipes in

  • Heat an iron skillet or a non-stick pan on low to medium heat. Reduce heat to low and pour a ladle full of batter in the center of the pan. Do not spread the batter. Allow it to spread on its own. Add little butter around the edges. Cook the pancake on low medium heat for half a minute or until bubbles appear over the pancake

  • When the pancake turns to a nice golden shade, flip it over and cook for half a minute and transfer to the serving plate
  • Serve warm, topped with butter/honey/Maple Syrup/Powdered Sugar/Caramel syrup/butterscotch syrup/Fruit syrup



  • All purpose flour can be used instead of wheat
  • Any extracts like almond, butterscotch etc. Can be used for flavour
  • Cinnamon powder can be added
  • Oil can be used instead of butter
  • Use 1 tbsp of flax seed powder/ 1 chia seed with 3 tbsp of water to replace egg. 1/2 cup of mashed banana/ 3 tbsp of Peanut Butter /1/4 cup of unsweetned Apple sauce can also be used to replace egg
