A Unique Way to Use Masa

I love to make homemade corn tortillas, but the masa harina comes in a huge pack. I was curious to try the lime treated corn flour out on other recipes, and thus these pancakes were born.

The masa makes super fluffy pancakes, and anything with buttermilk is deliciously soft and airy. The oddest ingredients often make the most surprisingly delicious dishes.

Masa Harina Pancakes
makes 12
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup masa harina
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp. sugar
2 cups buttermilk
2 tbsp. oil
2 eggs

Mix together  the flour, masa, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. In another bowl, whisk the wet ingredients. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, mixing until there are no more lumps. Spray a nonstick skillet with oil and heat it over medium heat. Once the oil sizzles, pour 1/4 cup of the batter at a time into the skillet. Cook each side for about a minute, until golden brown.
