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.
