Cornmeal Pancakes

Combine 1 cup cornmeal (I prefer Quaker brand for this recipe), 1 tsp salt and 2 TBL honey in a bowl. Stir in 1 cup boiling water, cover and leave for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, beat together 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk and 2 TBL vegetable oil. Separately sift together 1/2 cup flour and 2 tsp baking powder. After the 10 minutes have passed, add the liquid ingredients to the cornmeal mixture, then stir in the dry ingredients. Cook on griddle and serve with real maple syrup, not that stuff made from tables.
