Considering the 90 degree weather we are having at this time I felt I didn't want to heat the kitchen up by making anything in the oven. So, I made Blueberry Pancakes. Since I'm only making meals for myself I make enough to eat and enough to freeze and enjoy later. Here is my recipe:
Farmer Boy Blueberry Pancakes
- 1/2 Cup - Whole Wheat flour
- 1 Cup - Mix (Bisquick or the like)
- 1/2 teaspoon - Baking Powder
- 1 Cup - Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Directions: Sift together all the flours, sugar, powder, soda and salt into a large bowl. Stir in the oats and spice. Mix together the buttermilk, oil, half n half, buttermilk, and eggs & combine them with the dry mixture. (You may wish to add the blueberries at this time as well.) Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it rest for at least 15 minutes. Heat your giddle over medium high heat with about a Tablespoon of oil. (I use an Iron Skillet) You'll know the griddle is ready when a drop of water pops when dropped in it. Drop by 1/4 Cup onto the griddle. (You may add the blueberries on top of the pool at this time - about 5 per cake will do) Cook till you see bubbles form in the cake and the outsides start to firm up (about 1 - 2 minutes). Turn and cook the other side about another minute.
Serve: with a dollop of butter and whatever topping you prefer. (If you used cinnamon in the batter, you could use cinnamon sugar - maple sugar is also good - but any topping will do!
My guess is: Farmer Boy, (Almanzo) would have eaten a full stack of 10 or 11 of these! (See "Farmer Boy" by Laura Ingalls Wilder for further reference.)
