Cornbread Pancakes

Sometimes I meet old co-worker friends for dinner.  When I do this, my husband drives to a different train station, I drive down with the kids and we do a kid pass-off.  However, even on these nights I am nice enough to make everyone a home-cooked dinner!  In this most recent case it was a breakfast for dinner meal that's easy transportable because I don't think I mentioned that the kids end up eating their dinner in the car.  The drive is about thirty minutes and coincides with "normal" dinner time.  They had these pancakes, sausage links, and an apple (my daughter) or a banana (my son).  Of course, I should have realized what a mess my son would make with syrup in the car......yeah, the syrup ended up all over his jacket and the car seat.  I was wondering why the buckle kept getting stuck! Luckily, it was nothing that some cleaning wipes couldn't take care of!  Back to these pancakes though.....we all loved them.  (I ended up having the leftovers for breakfast!).  The cornmeal and sugar gave these pancakes the flavor of cornbread (which we all love!).   We will definitely be making these again soon!
