Is there a better way to start the day than with the morning blues? Blueberries, that is.
For years I purchased various brands of boxed pancake mix with the belief that adding water, oil and an egg was the easiest, and least expensive, way to make pancakes. It was not surprising that most of the brands have a similar flavor. It wasn’t until I started mixing my own batter from scratch that I realized that most boxed versions would leave a chemical, or artificial, taste afterwards.
I became creative with my batters by using different flours, adding spices (like cinnamon, nutmeg, orange zest, or allspice), and liquids (water, milk, or buttermilk). Depending on my hankering for variety, I would add fruit (diced apple, blueberries, chopped strawberries, fresh pineapple chunks, etc). Our family favorite remains to be blueberry pancakes.
When we cook from scratch, we gift ourselves the opportunity to be creative. Who says cooking from scratch has to be expensive or hard to do?
This is the buttermilk pancake recipe I use as a base. Enjoy your morning blues!
