Yield
Makes 10 pancakes; 4 to 5 servings

Notes: Though the Arizona Inn in Tucson, Arizona, serves these thin, slightly crunchy pancakes with butter and prickly pear syrup, they taste great with regular maple syrup too.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a bowl, mix cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk in milk and eggs until blended, then whisk in butter.

Step 2

Place a nonstick griddle or a 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium heat (350°); when hot, coat lightly with oil and adjust heat to maintain temperature. Spoon batter in 1/3-cup portions onto griddle and cook until pancakes are browned on the bottom and edges begin to look dry, about 2 minutes; turn with a wide spatula and brown other sides, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes longer. Coat pan with more oil as necessary to cook remaining pancakes.

Step 3

Serve pancakes as cooked or keep warm in a single layer on baking sheets in a 200° oven for up to 15 minutes.
