A few weeks ago I bought a package of frozen blueberries. I intended to find the best blueberry muffin recipe (I'm still on the lookout). I tried a few recipes I was disappointed with so I gave up my search and my blueberries were forgotten in my freezer. This weekend I decided to make pancakes for Saturday breakfast. I wanted something a little different from the regular ho hum pancake recipe so I found a recipe I could work with (here) and changed a few things to accommodate my tastes and ingredients on hand. I don't know if I can ever go back to regular pancakes. They were THAT good!
Best Blueberry Pancakes
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 pinch of salt
2 Tbs. sugar
1 egg (beaten)
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sour milk (1 cup milk + 1 Tbs. vinegar)
3 Tbs. melted butter
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.
In a separate bowl mix together egg, sour milk, melted butter and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and combine gently until all the dry spots are gone but some lumps remain. Do not over mix.
Spray your griddle with pam and pour the batter 1/4 cup at a time. When the batter starts to bubble- drop a few blueberries on to the pancake. Pressing them slightly with your finger. Let the pancakes continue to cook until the edges appear set then flip.
Serve with homemade maple syrup
2 cups sugar
1 cup boiling water
1 tsp maple flavoring
Combine all ingredients and let boil till sugar is dissolved.
