Pancake Tuesday

Today is Mardi Gras/ Shrove Tuesday/ Fat Tuesday/ the last day to pig out before Lent. Best of all, today is Pancake Tuesday: the day to eat pancakes until you puke. Then you'll be so sick of them that you won't want to eat them at all during Lent. :) Just kidding. You would never get sick of these nontraditional pancakes. They are not sweet, but savory. Spinach and cheese make them more like a dinner side than a sweet breakfast, but they are great in the morning too along with some scrambled eggs and thick juicy bacon. Happy Pancake Day!

Parmesan Spinach Pancakes (3)
 
Parmesan Spinach Pancakes
1 cup white cornmeal
1 cup masa harina
½ cup all- purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp dried cilantro
dash of cayenne pepper powder
dash of paprika
1- 12 ounce bag frozen chopped spinach, thawed
2 ½ cups buttermilk
1 cup water
2 eggs
6 ounces parmesan cheese, grated
2 ounces parmesan cheese, cut into tiny cubes
oil, as needed

Mix together the masa, cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. Stir in the cheese and spinach. In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, eggs, and water. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, stirring until well mixed. Heat about a teaspoon of oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Pour ¼ cup of the batter onto the hot pan. Cook each side of the pancake until golden brown, about a minute per side. Serve warm.
