Four-Grain Flapjacks

    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I liked these a lot. Although I ended up with only 14, they had an interesting, "grainy" texture and were much lighter than the usual dense (but hearty) whole-grain pancakes I make. I had only "light" buttermilk (not fat-free) and so in addition to switching to oil instead of butter, I used only 1 tbsp. I also cut back on the syrup just a bit, using only 3 tbsps. They did have a slight "chemical" flavor, so in the future I might cut back on the leavening or undermix the batter a bit. I will keep this recipe on file and would definitely serve these to company. Next time I might mill some popcorn for the cornmeal, and/or use a fruit topping in place of butter and maple syrup.
