This is a recipe for masa pancakes. Masa pancakes are very similar to regular pancakes, except for the enjoyable extra corn flour taste. This is a variant of a recipe from Mexscape.
- 1 cup masa (corn flour)
- ½ cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 ½ cups milk or water
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl, mix the wet ingredients in a second bowl, and then mix the two together. After thoroughly mixing, let the bowl sit for five minutes to let the corn flour soften. Stir the mixture again.
Put a fry pan on the stove at medium heat. Lightly butter or oil the pan. Using a ⅓ cup measure, pour batter into the fry pan. When each pancake has bubbles and starts to dry around the edges, flip and and cook it for another minute.
Serve with maple syrup or your favorite toppings. The above quantities give enough pancakes to feed two people.
