Blueberry pancakes are the most popular (according to our son Ember) variation of pancake. If you answered banana, chocolate chip, oatmeal, ham, honey or turkey - we are happy for you! BUT FOLKS' this recipe is for blueberry pancakes because we love them BERRY MUCH!
Pssst, are you a busy family, these bad boys can be frozen and plopped into your freezer for breakfast during the week, dinner or heck whatever you want!
- 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/4 cups whole milk
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (thawed if frozen)
- 1 Jar Salt Spring Kitchen Co. Blueberry & Basil Preserve
- 1 tablespoon Wabanaki Maple Syrup - Bareel Aged Toasted Oak
- Coconut oil for the pan
- In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together all your dry ingredients
- In a separate bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients until the egg is broken up.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and add the blueberries. Gently stir until you stop seeing flour. Be careful not to overmix, that will make the batter tough. Leave a few lumps for tender pancakes.
- Place your a large non-stick pan over a medium-high flame and let the surface get hot. It's hot enough when you sprinkle a few droplets of water over the surface and they evaporate.
- Moisten a paper towel with vegetable oil and lightly wipe the bottom of the pan. This will keep the pancakes from sticking.
- For each pancake, gently pour 1/2 cup of batter into the pan, using a ladle or a measuring cup. Use the back of a spoon to spread the batter into a circle.
- Bubbles will form in the batter. When they begin to pop, the pancakes are ready to be flipped. Turn over gently with the spatula and cook for about one minute on the flip side.
- Prepare the plate i.e. we choose to warm our plates because who likes cold pancakes, am I right or am I right! Plop on those pancakes, add fresh blueberry, add the blueberry preserve and drizzle, splash or pour wabanaki maple syrup!
