Whip up a bath of these very nice, savory pancakes to accompany a Central American-inspired meal.
Basic Masa Pancakes
Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Beat the remaining ingredients together in a separate bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and mix until all the ingredients are moistened.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium flame. Add about 1/2 cup of batter at a time to the pan. Brown the pancakes on one side, then flip and brown on the second side.
Remove the finished pancakes to a warm oven to hold while you continue with the rest of the batter. Serve with butter and Mexican-style sour cream.
- Fold different ingredients into the batter to vary its flavor and texture: shredded cheese, chopped herbs, corn kernels, shredded zucchini (salted and squeezed dry first).
- Use 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in the wet ingredients if you don't have sour cream on hand.
