Easy Cornmeal Flapjack Recipe

The complex carbs provide long-lasting energy. You can use any kind of maize meal you like. We prefer finely ground white maize meal. Serve your cornmeal flapjacks warm with maple syrup or powdered sugar, if desired. For variation add a 1/4 cup finely chopped dried plums to the mixture at the end of Step 2.

  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; mix well. Set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together milk, eggs and butter. Add to dry ingredients, mixing just until dry ingredients are moistened. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Heat a lightly greased griddle or frying pan over medium heat until hot. For each flapjack, pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle/frying pan. Turn flapjacks when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Cook second sides until golden brown.
  • Serve warm.
