Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes with Orange Maple Butter

Yes, its another recipe! Apparently when I have a few day off I like to cook!

Anyway I read about these pancakes on Bakerella who got it from Martha Stewart. They sounded so yummy I just had to make them. And they are as good as they look(check Bakerella's photos), our whole family loved them! I will be making them again!

Orange Maple Butter
1 stick softened butter
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon maple syrup
I also added some orange zest

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl with a rubber spatula.
Spoon the mixture on a piece of wax paper.
Roll and re-shape back into a stick of butter.
Twist the ends to secure the wax paper and refrigerate.

Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar, plus two tsp for blueberries
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup milk
3 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled
1 egg lightly beaten
2 cups blueberries
Extra butter for coating griddle
Maple Syrup
(Makes about 16)

Whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt and soda in a large bowl. Set aside.
Whisk together buttermilk, milk, butter and egg in medium bowl.
Add milk mixture to dry ingredients and whisk together just until combined.
Toss blueberries in a small bowl with 2 tsp sugar.
Heat a griddle over medium heat. Take extra butter and run over surface of griddle. Repeat as necessary throughout process.
Pour batter on griddle 1/4 cup at a time.
Add some of the sugared blueberries to each pancake.
Cook for about 3-4 minutes.
Flip and cook the other side for about 2 minutes

Martha also offers a good tip. As you are making the pancakes. Keep the finished ones on a cookie sheet in the oven at 200 degrees F to keep them warm.

Serve with Orange Maple Butter and Maple Syrup, so yummy!
