How To Make Cornbread Pancakes Using My Cornbread Baking Mix

Updated on November 10, 2013
4.3 stars from 6 ratings of Cornbread Pancakes

A Delicious Weekend Breakfast or Brunch

On weekends, I like to make something different for breakfast. Many times I make pumpkin pancakes, but a few weeks ago I eyed a recipe for cornbread pancakes, and decided to try my own version. Instead of making it from scratch, I used a cornbread baking mix that I whip up in advance, and it only took a few minutes to get this ready to cook on the griddle.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: Serves three people 2 medium pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups cornbread baking mix
  • 1 1/2 cups low or non-fat yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Instructions

  1. Add the baking mix into a large mixing bowl
  2. Mix in the wet ingredients
  3. Add oil to the pan or griddle, if necessary (if it has a nonstick coating, you may skip this step)
  4. Turn the stove to low/medium, or the electric griddle to about 325 degrees
  5. Using a ladle or large spoon, add a scoop of the pancake batter to the pan or griddle
  6. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until you see bubbles in the pancakes
  7. Flip them over, and cook until brown on the bottom, another 2 minutes or so
  8. Transfer to a plate, or else put in a 250 degree oven to keep it warm until you are ready to serve

      Sheri Faye,

      These pancakes hit the spot, and they're a little different than basic pancakes.

      Thanks for checking this out, and commenting. It's nice to see you.

      Have a wonderful new year!

      LKMore01,

      Your idea of crumbling them into chili sounds very good! I may try that sometime. It would be great to make up a big batch of pancakes, and then use leftovers for a second meal like that.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. I'm glad you think they sound tasty.

      Have a wonderful day, and good luck with your last minute Christmas shopping! I just got mine done last night, and will probably buy a couple more things last minute.

      Kathryn,

      This recipe sounds really tasty and there are so many uses for cornbread pancakes as you mentioned. (Love them with peanut butter) For dinner I would try them crumbled up in homemade chili adding cheese and sour cream. Thank you for sharing!

      RTalloni,

      Not everyone likes pancakes, and it's okay. I think these have an interesting flavor, and it comes out to a very pleasing texture.

      If you try it, I hope you like it. But even if you don't, thanks for taking the time to read and comment, and have a wonderful day!

      The idea of pancakes always sounds good to me, but I never quite come to like them. Maybe your recipe will do the job for me. For people who must avoid cow milk products it's fairly easy to find goat milk yogurt now, so I can try this soon--thanks!

      Though it is not common to eat cornbread here in Germany I have already eaten it because they make it in my husband's country Georgia (Europe). Cornbread pancakes are a great variety I would love to try. Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

      Those sound like great toppings for pancakes!

      Buckwheat pancakes. That sounds interesting.

      Martin,

      You're welcome. I'm glad that you are excited about it.

      I haven't made pancakes in a few weeks, so I think I will make some more soon.

      Have a great day!

      Great recipe and well illustrated! Thank you for sharing all your step by step pictures! I never had cornbread pancakes. My husband is the one usually preparing pancakes and he often makes them with buckwheat. I love to eat them with dulce de leche or with home made apricot jam :-)

      Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

      Cornbread is a true Southern staple. I can see this paired with a bowl of pinto beans or chili. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

      Bill,

      I would've never known it wasn't common around there! It is especially popular down South, but my family grew up eating it, and they serve it at some of the little homestyle restaurants I used to go to when I was younger. I personally love corn bread!

      Thanks for taking the time to check this out and leave a comment, Bill! This was a less involved hub than normal. I am actually working on a more intensive one right now, and I am putting off my H.O.W. article until later. Oops, it'll be a week late :(

      Have a great night, Bill, and I am glad you have had a great weekend.

      Cornbread must be a regional attraction because we rarely hear about it here in the northwest. Oh sure, people make it occasionally, but nothing like on the east coast and the south. I'll file this away; never know when I'll get a hankering for some cornbread. Thanks for the recipe!
