Blueberry Pancakes!

We've finally felt some relief from the heat.  It's been so HOT here in New Jersey, in the upper 90's, and it hasn't rained in two weeks!  Our grass is starting to burn up, that crunchy sound when we walk on it.  We've been watering our garden's every day, especially our veggie garden, it looks really good, and the Zucchini are finally growing!!!

Our local grocery store had a sale on fresh New Jersey Blueberries, I bought 6 packs, put them on cookie sheets, froze them, and then put them all in a big Ziploc bag.  We love blueberries in our house, and we love Blueberry Pancakes!

Here's a great recipe for my Blueberry Pancakes, when I have the time, I do like to make pancakes from scratch, and this recipe is easy.  I do use Bisquick from time to time.....don't faint, I know, but Bisquick makes really delicious pancakes. 

Try this recipe you will love it!

Blueberry Pancakes

2 cups all-purpose flour                                      
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups buttermilk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 1/2 teaspoon for griddle
1 cup of Blueberries

Heat griddle on High. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add eggs, buttermilk, and 4 tablespoons butter; whisk to combine. Batter should have small to medium lumps.
Don't over mix!

In a small bowl add the blueberries, and with a fork squish them slightly, kind of making them a little mushy, but not too much. Add this to the pancake batter, and stir.

Butter the griddle, and pour the pancake batter, in pools 2 inches away from one other. When pancakes have bubbles on top and are slightly dry around edges, about 2 1/2 minutes, flip over. Cook until golden on bottom, about 1 minutes.
On the hot griddle!

All ready to get turned!

Repeat with remaining batter. YUMMO!
