atole cakes



Celebratory breakfasts were in order so why not have pancakes and since it is me why not have pancakes with a southwestern flair?



I made buttermilk pancakes with blue corn meal and sunflower seeds. Blue corn meal was a breakfast staple for me at my grandmothers house, it was pueblo malt-o-meal as I called it, since we bought the corn meal on the pueblo, but it is actually called atole. My grandmother made it just a little thicker so it was a cereal rather than a drink, and if I asked for atole I got the drink not the cereal.



Anyway on to the pancakes. I sifted together the normal pancake ingredients but with the addition of blue corn meal and hemp nuts.
(I know, I know, so uncarnivourous of me but we dont have to eat meat all the time)



The pancakes turned out real nice and a magical drop landed and got cooked up to resemble a little heart, ready, all together now......awhhhhhhhhhh.

Funny that you have a pancake post, Craig and I are currently in our Buckwheat pancake phase. Which I am completely enjoying. Breakfast for dinner is the ultimate comfort food.

Awwwwwww - that was cute!!!

Great photos!!! I really like dragon fruit. I first had it in Darwin about 4 years ago - wonderful and the kids think its great. Now you said that the pulp is greish white??? Our dragon fruit pulp is bright pink - and I mean bright pink!!!! I wonder if that is a climatic thing?????? Thats probably why the kids love it because it makes everything turn pink!!!
