Blueberry pancakes, what a wonderful way to wake up in the morning. I let my older daughter choose the breakfast, and this was what she had in her mind. I went to Epicurious, and found this perfect recipe (perfect because I had all the ingredients) from Bon Appetit. It had almost 4 forks, which always is a good sign. I was just a little concerned because the blueberries were gigantic. Bigger than I had ever seen in my life – and I was worried about the weight of them in the pancakes.
Well – I had good reason to worry, this was a very tough batch. Not only did they keep flying out when I flipped them, the first batch was raw around the blueberries. So – I tried a different method – the same method I use with chocolate chips. I just added the plain batter to the pan. Just when I thought they were cooked enough to flip – I added the blueberries, and pressed them down into the batter. I still lost a couple of blueberries, but at least they were cooked all the way through.
These pancakes were delicious – so delicate and tender on the inside – and crisp on the outside. The blueberries added just the right amount of sweetness for me – but of course my family doused them with maple syrup. I am excited to try this with baby blueberries, right off the trees from our backyard – if the sun ever comes out to ripen them.
