A blueberry day

Deliciously rich organic blueberries…

In my world, there is nothing better than a blueberry pancake served with a side of freshly whipped cream sprinkled with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon sugar.  Maybe some warm maple syrup on the side and a bowl of thinly sliced bananas mingled with oven-baked pecans. Delicious. A vase of brightly colored tulips set on the table with bursts of tart pink, creamsicle orange, and sunny yellow, a favorite magazine or read on the side, and you are off to a great weekend! For my all time favorite blueberry pancakes, I have taken and adapted the basic pancake recipe from The Joy of Cooking (2006). 

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 3/4 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (the good stuff makes a difference & I am quite liberal w/ this measurement!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon disoronno (optional! but oh so yummy!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest

Mix all dry ingredients.  Mix all wet ingredients. Stir wet ingredients into dry then throw in about a pint of blueberries. Let sit for a little bit (don’t mix this too vigorously – keep the blueberries whole!) and off you go!  I like to put some butter in the pan (medium to high heat) then wipe the butter with a paper towel each time before adding the pancake batter (about 1/4 cup).  Turn down stove to medium heat. Enjoy!
