Sunday mornings are all about relaxing and taking the time to do the things you enjoy. Like sleeping in and eating blueberry pancakes. And since you have time on Sunday mornings you really should be making the pancakes from scratch. Actually you should never use pancake mix, you know it doesn't taste as good!
The one pancake recipe that has worked very well for me is from the classic American cookbook The Joy of Cooking. Every time I read this book it's like I get a little cooking lesson. From the technical information on cooking and baking to the sections on knowing your ingredients. If you are looking for one cook book you can rely on, this one is it.
Yields: 14 4-inch pancakes
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 1 tsp of salt
- 3 tbsp of sugar
- 2 tsp of baking powder
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 3 tbsp of melted butter
- 1 1/4 cup of milk
- 1 cup of blueberries
- In a bowl whisk together the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder.
- In a separate bowl mix together the eggs, butter and milk.
- Quickly combine the wet ingredients and into the dry ingredients. You don't need to over mix the batter, there should still be small to medium lumps. Mix in the blueberries.
- Heat your frying pan to medium high heat and wipe the pan with butter using a paper towel. I like to scoop the batter with a 1/3 cup measuring cup into the frying pan.
- Once the pancakes have bubbles on top you can flip them and you only need to flip them once. The second side does not need as long to cook, about 1 minute.
- Repeat this process until all your batter is gone! Top off with real maple syrup.
