Santa Fe Blue Corn Pancakes with Homemade syrup and toasted pine nuts

Blue Corn Pancakes with Homemade Blueberry Syrup

Last summer, we were fortunate enough to be able to take a small family vacation and visit Santa Fe, New Mexico. Of course we fell in love with the culture, the scenery, and the southwestern style food.

So naturally when we returned home I had to try to recreate these wonderful pancakes that we ate for breakfast one morning at the lovely Luminaria restaurant located at The Inn and Spa at Loretto https://www.destinationhotels.com/inn-at-loretto/dining/luminaria-restaurant-patio (absolutely beautiful place).

Now, I am not certain if this is the exact recipe or not but my taste buds think so! I think that you will enjoy them too!

Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add blue cornmeal and boiling water. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes. We used Bob's Red Mill Blue Cornmeal medium ground http://www.bobsredmill.com/index.php/catalog/product/view/id/2691 And...Anson Mills Native Fine Blue Cornmeal http://ansonmills.com/products/19
  2. Add salt, sugar, baking powder. Blend well with whisk. The batter will be warm because of the boiling water.
  3. Add the 3 slightly beaten eggs, milk, and unbleached flour. Blend well again.
  4. Add the 6 tablespoons of butter and allow to slowly melt into the batter while stirring.
  5. Let batter rest for another 5 minutes while the griddle is preheating to 275 degrees(if using electric griddle otherwise cook at medium heat).
  6. Spray the pre-heated griddle with coconut oil non-stick spray. Spoon 1/2 cup of the batter for each pancake. It will be time to flip the pancake when the side up looks bubbly and dry. Cook both sides until slightly golden brown.
  7. To make the homemade syrup, heat a small heavy saucepan, add the sugars and water. Bring to a boil. Cook until sugars are dissolved. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
  8. Drizzle syrup over the hot pancakes and sprinkle with toasted pine nuts. You will feel as though you are back in Santa Fe again!
Recipe Notes
Try this syrup recipe by adding a cup fresh blueberries or strawberries while cooking the syrup. You can enjoy the syrup with whole berries or give them a whirl with your hand blender.
Make sure that the syrup has cooled sufficiently before doing this though to avoid any unfortunate mishaps with hot syrup!

Instructions
  1. Use either a pre made pie crust from the freezer section of your local market or make your own pie crust and blind bake for about 10 minutes in a 425 degree oven. See below for some great tips on how to blind bake. http://www.epicurious.com/archive/howtocook/primers/pie-blind-baking
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whip the egg whites to stiff peaks and set aside.
  3. Using a mixer, cream the butter well then add the sugar. Continue to cream until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks and continue to mix. Slowly add the buttermilk followed by the lemon juice then zest. It's now time to incorporate the egg whites by folding them into the creamed mixture.
  4. Pour into your prepared pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes or until the pie is set. The top will be a golden brown color. Cool on a wire rack and serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
