 Blueberry Pancake Day eatpicks

 

Pancakes.

Who does not love settling down on a cozy weekend morning and digging in to a stack of warm, fluffy cakes piled high on a plate, dripping in melted butter and gooey syrup?

Just me?

Didn't think so.

My family's flavor of choice is Banana-Chocolate Chip, but I love fresh Blueberry Pancakes.

In honor of National Blueberry Pancake Day, I'm going to share my recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes. This easy, light batter makes it absolutely perfect as a base to enjoy plain and holds it's own with any add-ins you choose; including – but certainly not limited to- blueberries!

Buttermilk Pancake Recipe*:

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1 1/4 tsp. baking soda

2 cups buttermilk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 egg, separated

 

To Make:

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Mix well. Add buttermilk, vanilla and egg yolk. Stir with whisk until just mixed together.

In separate bowl,  beat egg white with a whisk until stiff. It should look like this:

Add to batter and fold in with a spatula, gently.

If making chocolate chip flavor, add in 1 cup mini chips and stir gently.

Using a soup ladle, pour batter onto a hot griddle or pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. If making blueberry or other fruit, place a few pieces on top of batter before turning. Cook until batter has bubbles, then flip. Cook 2 minutes longer or until golden brown.

Top pancakes with a few more berries.

Enjoy!

They are so light and fluffy...absolutely delish. The best part- I love that I know exactly what is in the mix!
