Blueberry Pancakes

August 6, 2012

It’s been a while since my last pancake post, we better fix that with some delicious blueberry pancakes. Yum!

These lightly sweet and fluffy pancakes, perfectly balanced with juicy, sweet-tart blueberries, are a real winner for any weekend brunch. What’s more, the batter yields a fluffier pancake the longer it sits, so throw together the batter, and as it waits, you can prepare the remainder of the meal. Perfect!

With a mixture of whole wheat and all purpose flour, these pancakes are both light and hearty, and the fiber from both the blueberries and the whole wheat will keep you fueled all morning long.

Enjoy these topped with maple syrup, a pat of melted butter, or even this blueberry sauce and enjoy!

    When I first saw the photo I thought "Wow, those are so thick!" I didn't know it was the resting time that caused it.

    My mother-in-law just gave me a pancake pan to take with me to the north. I have to send you a photo of it, it's perfect pancake sized and cracked me up when I saw it. I guess now I'll need to try these pancakes.

      That's awesome, I can't wait to see a picture. I have my favorite pancake pan, too. Though I don't think it was sold specifically as a "pancake pan."

      Yes,the resting time is key as it allows the baking powder to do its thing and make everything rise nice and fluffy.
