 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       c            Yellow Cornmeal
      1/2   c            All Purpose Flour
    1       t            Sugar
      3/4   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Baking Powder
      1/2   ts           Baking Soda
    1       c            Buttermilk
    1       lg           Egg
    2       tb           Vegetable Oil
    1       c            Maple Syrup, Warmed
 
   Mix the cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder
   and baking soda in a medium size bowl. Combine the
   buttermilk, egg and oil in a small bowl. Stir the
   buttermilk mixture into the cornmeal mixture just
   until well blended (the batter will still be slightly
   lumpy). Lightly oil the griddle or large frying pan.
   Heat over medium high heat until a drop of water will
   dance across the surface. Stir the batter and drop a
   test cake ( 1/4 cup of batter) on the griddle. Cook
   until the bubbles burst on the top surface and the
   bottom is light brown. Turn and cook the other side
   until it is browned (1-2 minutes). (Add more
   buttermilk to the batter if the first cake does not
   spread well.) Serve the griddle cakes with the warm
   syrup.
