Fresh Starts: Blueberry-Cornmeal Griddle Cakes

I must admit I'm not the biggest pancake person, but this recipe for blueberry-cornmeal griddle cakes, which comes courtesy of the Lake Austin Spa Resort in Texas, made me a total convert. There's something about the rustic cornmeal texture and the spicy-sweet chili honey that keeps me intrigued. Want to re-create a spa breakfast in your home? Read on.

Made these for brunch, they were so delicious. I subbed unsweetened almond milk. I didn't notice any grittiness, maybe my cornmeal was a finer grind. I'd definitely make them again.

Made these tonight! I liked them, they were a bit too cornmeal-y to me, I'll balance the flour/cornmeal ratio next time.
