Kitchen antics, bread baking, family recipes, research recipes for friends, global search for tasty treats, love to learn new cooking delights, spices, travel, friends, pups, music, stories. They all happen in and around the kitchen. The more the merrier.
We visited Sante Fe years ago. We couldn't get enough of the black bean soup, blue cornmeal tortillas and blue corn meal pancakes. Of course, it all came with a choice of red or green chile sauce. We have a passion for the green chilies. I was happy to find Arrowhead Blue Corn Meal at my local grocer last week. Ooo-la-la. I knew there would be bcm pancakes in the near future. The near future arrived this morning.
mise en place
I love the bread book, Breads of the Southwest. Beautiful photos, history and traditions of culture pull the baker in me back to the southwest. The batter comes together quickly.
Heat the skillet and add the batter. Leave, adjusting the heat as needed, until the cakes show a dry edge and a few bubbles. I love how the blue hue shows in the batter.
Once the edges show a bit dry, the cake will flip easily. You won't need long on the second side. Plate, serve, and enjoy.
