Suddenly ... there was only one bag left! This was a surprise! Where did the large supply offrozen blueberries go? This sole bag would be devoured, but what delicious food would be prepared?
Considering that Father's Day is this weekend and my husband's fave pancake choice, it did not take too long to decide what would be on our breakfast table on Sunday. Planning ahead is always good. Monday the dark blue berries were placed in the fridge to defrost. Tuesday's breakfast was a preview - Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes. There were many extratasty light pancakes after breakfast on Tuesday, so each was placed in a sandwich bag and then the stacks went into Gallon sized Ziploc Freezer Bags and into the freezer they went. :)
The recipe I use is adapted from BURYGOLD's Buttermilk Pancakes II on allrecipes.com. They are light, absolutely delicious and just the best with the added blueberries. I use Egg Whites as often as possible when cooking/baking along with Olive Oil. Low Fat Milk and Low Fat Buttermilk are always in our fridge. Whenever I'm cooking I take a few steps to my Spice Rack for the Cinnamon & Nutmeg. :)
Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes
adapted from BURYGOLD's Buttermilk Pancakes II on allrecipes.com
3 Cups Flour
3 Tablespoons Sugar
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 and 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
3/4 teaspoon Salt
1 Whole Egg
4 Egg Whites
3 Cups Low Fat Buttermilk
1/2 Cup Milk - I use 1% Milk.
1/3 Cup Olive Oil - for sauteing & baking
Cinnamon & Nutmeg - a dash from each bottle that's located in my Spice Rack
Blueberries - fresh or defrosted
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir well.
In smaller bowl combine Whole Egg and Egg Whites, beat with fork.
Add 1 Cup Buttermilk, Milk and Olive Oil to Egg/Egg Whites. Stir.
Pour into dry ingredients.
Add remaining 2 Cups Buttermilk and stir with rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
Batter will be lumpy.
Place about 1/2 cup batter on heated griddle. I make 3 pancakes at a time on my smaller griddle.
Add 8 - 10 Blueberries to the top of each pancake.
Turn over when first side is lightly brown and then brown other side.
*Remember to rinse fresh Blueberries under cold water before using.
This will be a weekend filled with fun! My special breakfast on Sunday will be heated in our microwave. :)
