I am always thrilled when someone takes pleasure in such simple things. Yesterday it was a friend of mine who wanted nothing less than some good old blueberry pancakes. And I would agree; those simple things make us happy. An outing for breakfast was in order before the day’s activities started.
Arriving at one of my favorite breakfast places [Bon Vie], she got her pancakes. I am often asked if I have any recipes for this or a recipe for that, so I thought posting a recipe for blueberry pancakes would be a great way to send her a recipe. Hopefully she will enjoy this recipe as I enjoyed the pancakes this morning.
This recipe is based off a basic one that can be adapted for whatever fruit or additions you may want to put in the batter.
Blueberry Pancake Recipe
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup granular sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 ¾ cups whole milk -or- buttermilk
3 Tablespoons safflower oil
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh -or- frozen blueberries
1. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and sea salt. Set aside.
2. Combine milk, eggs, oil, butter and vanilla extract.
3. Add wet ingredients into the flour mixture and whisk until smooth.
4. Heat a skillet to medium, using a little butter to grease the pan, pour 1/3 cup batter into pan. Once air bubble form on the surface of the pancake, they are ready to be flipped over. Cook for few minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Makes 10 pancakes.
