Blueberry Pancakes

I woke up this morning with an impossible to ignore blueberry craving. Luckily I had some blueberries on the counter that I picked up over the weekend at the farmer’s market. I thought about making blueberry muffins, but the growls from my stomach convinced me that something more substantial was needed. Something like BLUEBERRY PANCAKES!

I loaded the pancake batter with a bowlful of macerated blueberries. I chose to make them with whole wheat flour, but all purpose would have been fine, too.  I normally like to use buttermilk in this recipe, but sadly didn’t have any. I substituted with whole milk and couldn’t tell a difference. Finally, I added a little baking powder and baking soda to make them super fluffy and light. The end result?  Blueberry Whole Wheat Pancakes (aka Perfection).

BLUEBERRY PANCAKES

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1.5 cups whole milk or buttermilk
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups whole wheat or AP flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • maple syrup for serving

Directions

In a small bowl, use a fork to slightly mash the blueberries with 2 tablespoons sugar. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, remaining sugar, butter and vanilla. Stir in the blueberries. Mix in the flour, baking powder, soda and salt until just combined. Batter will be thick.
Heat a griddle or a nonstick skillet. Ladle 1/2 cup of batter onto griddle and spread of batter. Cook for a couple minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip and cook for another minute. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with maple syrup.

Blueberry Scones

Scones are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast treat.

Most beach town folks are early birds; we rise with the sun and wind the day down as the sun sets.

My mornings begin as the sun’s rays shine through my loft windows and the smell of freshly brewed coffee (pre-set the night before, of course) makes its way from the kitchen and into my bedroom.

It usually takes me a while to physically get out of bed, so I don’t leave myself much time for breakfast. Luckily, I’ve devised a system where I can laze around in bed and have breakfast, all while being on time! My secret? Having breakfast treats ready to go on my way out the door and to the beach.

I like to make blueberry scones the day before and enjoy them the next morning. These scones are buttery, sweet and moist, and the middle layer of fruit ensures that every bite is bursting with blueberry flavor.
