Spicy Cornmeal Pancakes (Mısır Unlu Kaşık Dökmesi)

I love corn in all shapes and sizes, and these hearty cornmeal pancakes are one of my favorite brunch or lunch specials.

2 cups of cornmeal / cornmeal

2 eggs

1/2 yogurt

1 cup of milk

2 teaspoons of baking soda

1/4 cup of olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 finely chopped herbs: parsley, dill, mint or chives, choose one.

1/2 cup hard-to-melt cheese like crumbled feta, small diced halloumi, or Turkish Tulum goat cheese (I use a mix of Syrian halloumi and Turkish Tulum goat cheese)

1/2 pitted and chopped black olives

– Whisk eggs, milk, oil and yoghurt together.
– Add corn flour, baking powder, salt and mix.
– Add cheese, herbs and olives and fold into the batter.
– Heat a coated pan on medium heat, lightly grease the pan and drop the pancake batter with a spoon. These are similar to old fashioned pancakes, a little thick. ~ Let boil for 1-2 minutes, check the bottom and turn over. Let simmer for another minute.
– Serve with butter or some kind of spreadable cheese on top as there is not too much cheese.
