Slideshow: Pancake Recipes

  1. One 8 1/2-ounce package corn muffin mix (1 1/2 cups)
  2. 3/4 cup buttermilk
  3. 1 large egg, beaten
  4. 1 cup chopped ham (6 ounces)
  5. 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  6. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  7. Pure maple syrup, for serving
  1. In a large bowl, whisk the corn muffin mix with the buttermilk, egg, ham and scallion just until combined. In a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Scoop four 1/4-cup mounds of batter into the skillet and cook, turning once, until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the flapjacks to serving plates and repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and batter. Serve with maple syrup.
