Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberries

To my great delight, it's finally blueberry season! If you're not taking advantage of the fresh blueberries finally available, you're missing out on some serious deliciousness. And if you happen to get bored with eating blueberries in your cereal, muffins, or as a snack (though I really can't imagine that happening), throw some in these buttermilk pancakes. Or go really wild and make them for dinner one night. I bet your kids will love it.

Grandma Jane's Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberries*

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoons oil
2 eggs
1 cup blueberries (optional)
  1. In a large bowl, whisk all dry ingredients together.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk, oil and egg.
  3. Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients and mix just until combined (the batter will be quite thick).
  4. Scoop batter onto a hot, well greased griddle (try about 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake). Sprinkle a few berries onto each pancake before flipping.

I hate blueberries. I am not sure why, but I cannot stand them. Maybe its the nasty stem part, or perhaps its their horrid texture. I just do not like them one or on anything.

WOW, I made these for the boys and me this morning for breakfast. YUM! I don't think I'll ever go back to my basic pancake recipe. Thanks for posting, Kelly!

My colleague brought in some fresh blueberries today. A lot of fresh blueberries. I thought about cheating and using a mix to make pancakes with them, but I realized that would not honor the hand-picked fruit. Thanks for this very simple, delicious recipe.
