Keep pancakes warm on a cookie sheet in a 200-degree F oven until you are ready to serve them.


  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup honey, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 3/4 cup natural whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal, finely ground
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • vegetable oil for cooking


  • 1 Preheat a large sauté pan or griddle over medium-low heat. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine orange juice, 1/4 cup honey, lemon zest and egg. Use a whisk to make sure ingredients are mixed well. In a separate mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt). Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients using the whisk to make sure mixture is combined. In a small bowl, combine softened butter and honey, and set aside.
  • 2 Add a small amount of vegetable oil to the preheated pan or griddle. Using a 1/4 cup measure for each pancake, carefully pour batter into pan or griddle. Cook the pancakes until they start to bubble on the uncooked side, about 2 to 3 minutes. When the bubbles start to appear, flip each pancake in the pan, and let cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat cooking procedure until all the pancake batter is cooked. Serve pancakes warm with the honey butter.
