The dishes aren't even done as I write this blog post. These pancakes are just that good that it was all I could do to finish eating them before I ran over to my computer to type up the recipe for you.
It's a Sunday morning as I write this, a nice lazy Sunday morning. Definitely a day for pancakes, reading books on the sofa and lounging. The sun is shining and while I haven't yet stepped outside, the air is crisp and looks inviting, in a bundle-up kinda way. Perhaps we shall venture outside later on today and get some fresh cold air.
I was quite pleased with myself yesterday, not turning on the computer once. Granted we were gone for the afternoon & evening, but still. That left all of the morning to fiddle on the internet if I wanted. But my willpower won over and I was so pleased not to be rotting my brain in front of the computer where I find myself spending lots of time already.
Granted I hopped onto the computer this morning and needed a bit of a fix, but I am promising myself only to use it for educational things on my list of things to do.
But back to the recipe at hand.
Blueberry Corn Pancakes. So good. Such a nice twist on pancakes which I like. I am always up for a new recipe and this one didn't disappoint. The only issue I had with the pancakes was flipping them. They were delicious, but definitely not pretty - at least not those first couple. I don't know what it was, but flipping my blueberry corn pancakes as a task clearly designed for someone else. They got all super duper bunchy on the sides and didn't flip in nice pancake fashion.
Oh well. At least taste wasn't sacrificed!
BLUEBERRY CORN PANCAKES Ingredients 3/4 c all purpose flour 1/2 c cornmeal 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 2 tbl canola oil 1 1/4 c almond milk (the recipe called for soy, but I used almond milk) 1/3 c water 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbl maple syrup 2 tsp lemon zest (I omitted this because, well, I had no lemons.) 1 c fresh blueberries oil for pan
1. Mix flour, salt, baking powder and cornmeal together. In a separate bowl combine other ingredients. Mix together in same bowl. Fold in blueberries. Don't overmix as pancakes will be too tough. Lumps are okay.
2. Oil pan and using a ladle, pour batter onto pan for pancake.
