If you remember back in February I was enchanted by the idea of a rainbow cake, I’m still very much in love with these beauties, but I have found another rainbow goody to adore as well. The rainbow pancake! I first saw the idea over at I Am Mommyand knew I wanted to try them.
I made my pancakes using a basic cornmeal recipe from Bob’s Red Mill. 1 cup boiling water 3/4 cups cornmeal 1-1/4 cup buttermilk (or try this recipeif you do not have any on hand) 2 eggs 1 cup unbleached white flour 1 tbsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 1/4 tsp baking soda 1/4 cup vegetable oil
Pour water over cornmeal, stir until thick. Add milk; beat in eggs. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Add to cornmeal mixture. Stir in oil. Add food coloring! Cook on hot ungreased griddle. Makes about 14 pancakes. I have recently realized that there are a lot of creative people out there devoting their time just to the art of pancake making. Two of my favorite are The Pancake Project and Jim’s Pancakes. Happy Flipping!
