Saturday Morning Blueberry Pancakes

What’s better than waking up to warm rays of sun shining through your window and covering your bed on a Saturday morning?  Walking out to the kitchen in your jammies and finding a plate of blueberry pancakes waiting for you.  So if there’s someone who you’d like to give a perfect morning to, sneak out of bed a little early, throw on a cute apron, and get cooking.

Pancakes made from scratch are super easy, and exponentially better than the box mix kind.  If you bake at all, you should have all the ingredients in your cupboards already… and you can throw in whatever seasonal flair you’d like– berries, lemon, even chocolate chips or M&Ms if you’re into that.

So, make sure you’ve got these things in the house and tomorrow morning make someone feel extra special:

1 cup flour

2 Tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

Pinch of Salt

1 cup buttermilk

2 tbsp melted and cooled butter

1 egg

1 cup fresh blueberries

Cooking spray (or butter or oil… but I like using spray for pancakes)

Whisk together the egg, buttermilk, and butter.  Add in the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Lumps are good in pancake batter, so don’t stir too much.  Gently mix in the berries.

Turn your oven on to its lowest setting and place a plate on the middle rack.  Heat a pan on medium, and coat it with cooking spray (or butter or oil, whatever).  Gently drop about 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot pan and let the pancake cook until bubbles rise to the top and pop, and the edges are slightly brown.  Using a spatula or your awesome pancake flipping skills, turn that puppy over and cook the other side for a minute of two until both sides are golden and yummy looking.  Set your finished pancake on the plate in the oven to keep warm, and continue until you’ve used all the batter.

Top with butter, maple syrup, powdered sugar, jam, or whatever you want.   Have some coffee and juice ready and enjoy a beautiful breakfast on a beautiful morning with someone you love.
