Lemon Cornmeal Pancakes {Roommate Dinner}

I was born in raised in Michigan, I love myself some Jiffy mixes!  In fact, it’s one of the few mixes I’ll eat.  There is just something about those fake little blueberries that reminds me of home and my mom baking muffins when we were out of milk for cereal.  One of the mixes I love is the corn muffins, they make great pancakes!  These pancakes are really similar to the corn muffin pancakes of my youth, but jazzed up a bit.

Sometimes you just need to eat breakfast for dinner.  The morning comes way too soon and there are never enough hours in the day to start off with a nice hardy breakfast like pancakes.  So when I’m in the mood for a big breakfast, I make it for dinner.

These pancakes are nice and tasty.  The cornmeal has a little bit of grittiness and the lemon adds a nice flavor twist.  When eaten with some bacon, strawberries, and a bellini, you have yourself a delicious meal!
