Prep Time: 60 minutes
Sift together flour with Red Star Double-Acting Baking Powder and Red Star Replacit Milk LMF. Next, incorporate with sugar and salt and then add the cooked, fully-cooled cornmeal. Add honey and eggs and blend until batter is smooth. Then add melted butter and water and continue to mix until smooth
Allow batter to rest for approximately 1 hour prior to use. Please note that batter will thicken slightly during resting so additional water may be added to improve pouring consistency, if necessary. Conversely, if the batter is too soft, additional sifted cake flour may be added.
To cook, pour batter onto a heated griddle, 325° to 350°F (163° to 177°C), that has been slightly greased. Cook pancakes until both sides are nicely browned. Remove from griddle and serve warm.
The above is a suggestion only.
