|In medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; mix well. Set aside. In small bowl, whisk together milk, eggs and butter. Add to dry ingredients, mixing just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in dried plums; let stand 5 minutes. Heat lightly greased griddle or skillet over medium heat until hot. For each pancake, pour scant 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Cook second sides until golden brown. Serve warm with maple syrup, if desired.
