Winning Recipe: Jalapeno-Cornmeal Pancakes

We thought we'd had our fill of pancakes after completing this month's bonus booklet, 50 Pancakes and Waffles. But then Bonnie Stallings of Martinsburg, WV, entered these jalapeno-cornmeal pancakes in our January/February 2010 chile pepper recipe contest, and we found ourselves hungry for one more batch. Bonnie transformed her 30-year-old recipe for Mexican cornbread into this sweet-and-spicy breakfast with a double dose of jalapenos: She puts them in the batter and in the orange syrup. "Depending on how hot you like it, you can always add more!" she says.

Pancake Art

Using a batter-filled squeeze bottle, Smith drew the outline of each face and let the lines cook slightly, then filled in the gaps with more batter. The outlines cooked longer, so they were darker than the rest of the pancake.
