"Breakfast" one of Bill's favorite meals

Bill (TexasChef) and I often talked about food, well OK we talked a lot about food. And about any thing else you can think about. Anyway, I know Pancakes was one things that he liked a lot. Here is his recipe for Pancakes copy from his book "Cookin Texan"

Seems there is always a place for pancakes for breakfast. Almost every
restaurant has them. Nothing like a short stack with few sausage
links and a fried egg to start your day!!!! My mother used to make what I
thought were the best don't we all? I prefer buttermilk pancakes with
lots of whipped butter and homemade syrup of whatever fruit I have
1-1/4 C. All Purpose Flour 1/8 - ¼ C. Yellow Cornmeal
2 Tsp. Baking Powder 1 Tsp. Sugar
2 Eggs 1 TBS. Vegetable Oil
½ Tsp. Baking Soda
Buttermilk (just enough to make batter thin enough to pour
Sift flour, cornmeal, baking soda, and baking powder into a mixing bowl.
Mix to blend baking powder and baking soda evenly. Beat eggs, then add
sugar and salt to eggs and mix. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and
mix only enough to moisten dry ingredients . Don't over mix. Add milk
enough to make consistency you like for pancake batter . Don't mind
lumps , if any. Rest batter for 10 to 15 minutes . Bake on hot griddle
(hot enough so a drop of water dances on it ). Grease griddle very
lightly between pancakes because pancakes absorb some oil.
Serve with a homemade syrup like raspberry puree syrup.
Now ya'll go make some, doesn't that look good.

I love a little cornmeal in my pancakes! I just noticed that in the recipe!!! Silly me! Cornmeal definitely MAKES a pancake! I have been having pancakes a lot lately with homemade blueberry compote. So good! Like father, like daughter. I'm making this recipe this weekend!
