Blueberry Pancakes

Posted on
With this easy “from scratch” recipe, there is no need
to keep a box of pancake mix on hand.
At least, that’s what I think!
Don’t let the directions make you think this recipe
isn’t “quick” to put together because,…it really IS!!!
This past week, I took a little friend blueberry picking.  It was a new experience for her and, for myself, it was an experience I wanted to repeat.   We ate so many of them before they were off their bushes for a few hours.  YUM!!!  Others went into two kinds of muffins, and these into pancakes.  More of…….. YUM!!!
At $3.00/lb., they were still more economical
than paying close to that much for just a pint.
INGREDIENTS:
(This recipe makes about six pancakes the size of those shown in the picture.  You can easily double it for more.)
  • 3/4 cup milk (I did not use low-fat milk)
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (shake well before measuring)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking power
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup blueberries (I used fresh)
  • Cooking spray

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add the vinegar to the milk and let sit for about five minutes to “curdle”.
  2. During the five minutes that the milk is “souring”, combine all of the dry ingredients and whisk together well– the flour, white sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.
  3. When milk is ready, whisk the egg and melted butter into it.
  4. Pour the dry mixture into the mixture of liquid ingredients. Mix only until quite smooth.  Add berries.  Stir in.
  5. Heat pan or griddle to medium heat and lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Pour 1/3 cupfuls of batter* on the prepared hot surface.

 

7.  Flip to finish.   Serve with whatever you desire.
*The deep color of the yolks in the free-range eggs
we have is what made the batter/pancakes
more yellow than usual.
Above:  If you don’t have extra berries to garnish
the plate, that’s okay, too!!!!  Believe me!, there’s
nothing wrong with eating them just like this!!!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
