Strawberry Cornmeal Pancakes

Strawberry Cornmeal Pancakes
With a little Cinnamon & a little Nutmeg!  Oohh, what a great tasting pancake!

There was a quart of fresh Strawberries in our fridge and there was a pkg. of "JIFFY" corn muffin mix in the pantry.  Saturday AM a quick & easy breakfast was needed.  With our current weather of heat and also storms mixed in, our lawn grows quickly.  My DH's plan was to mow the front/ sides and perhaps squeeze in mowing the back.  It all depended on what surprise Mother Nature had for us.

On the side of the "JIFFY" corn muffin mix box is a recipe for Cornmeal Pancakes that I use perhaps once a month - with a few changes.  I substitute:
  1. 2 slightly beaten Egg Whites for 1 Whole Egg
  2. Olive Oil (for baking and sauteing) for melted Shortening
  3. Soy Milk for Milk
I also add:
  1. 1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon 
  2. 1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg
Usually a mashed Banana is added to the batter.  However, Saturday AM the fresh Strawberries suddenly came to mind.  Adding sliced fresh Strawberries to the batter (on the griddle) makes for very yummy pancakes.  Warmed Strawberry slices combined with Cornmeal is so good!   

The lawn?  Our entire lawn was mowed, so we are all set for a few more days.  The few extra pancakes?  They are in our freezer.  :)

Sounds like the day turned out next to perfect. Good pancakes and I will have to give it a try. It is chilly here now and a little weird for this time of year. Have a good week!

Pam- It's handy to have a box of this quick mix on hand.
