These crusty cornmeal flapjacks, bursting with flavorful blueberries, are tasty anytime.  Drizzle with honey or buttery syrup.  Perfect for breakfast with bacon and eggs.   I like to use cream corn (optional ingredient) because it makes a lighter texture.  This recipe makes 12 flapjacks.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup yellow self-rising cornmeal mix

1/4 cup white self-rising cornmeal mix

1/3 cup white self-rising flour

2 tablespoons sugar (optional)

2 eggs, beaten

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk

1/2 cup yellow cream corn (optional)

1 cup fresh or frozen/thawed blueberries, coarsely mashed

4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

whole fresh blueberries for garnish


INSTRUCTIONS

In medium sized bowl, combine all ingredients except vegetable oil.  Stir together until pourable. Let batter rest 10 minutes to soften cornmeal.


In a large skillet over low heat, preheat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil until it sizzles.  Stir batter.  Drop 2-1/2 tablespoons of batter into hot skillet.  Spread thin with back of a spoon.  Flapjack will rise slightly while cooking.  Cook over low heat until edges look dry.  Flip.  Cook another 5 to 6 minutes until golden brown.  Texture should be similar to a pancake.   After cooking, place flapjacks on paper towels to drain.  After making 6 flapjacks, turn off heat.  Carefully wipe away crumbs with thick paper towels.  Add remaining 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.  Continue cooking as instructed.  Serve hot.
