Recipe: Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes



Blueberries make a classic pancake.
See Larry’s comment below on why blueberries are not only good, but good for you.

Here is a pancake classic, bursting with juicy berries. These pancakes are low fat and use whole wheat pastry flour.

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes – makes 12 pancakes


Canola oil for the griddle
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cup fresh or unthawed frozen blueberries

1.  Preheat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat until a sprinkle of water splashed on the surface immediately forms dancing droplets. Or preheat an electric frying pan to 350 degrees F.  Using a folded paper towel, lightly brush the griddle with oil.  Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until combined and make a well in the center.

3.  In another medium bowl, whisk the buttermilk and eggs until well combined. Pour into the well and stir with a wooden spoon just until smooth; there can be a few little lumps remaining. Gently stir the berries into the batter. Let stand for 5 minutes.

4. Using 1/4 cup batter for each pancake, pour the batter onto the griddle. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes and they burst, about 3 minutes. Use a pancake turner to flip the pancakes and cook until the other side is golden, about 2 minutes. Keep warm in the oven while preparing the rest of the pancakes. If the batter thickens too much upon standing, thin with a little regular or low-fat milk, not buttermilk.

Serve the pancakes warm.

  5. A pancake is a thin, flat cake prepared from a batter and cooked on a hot griddle or frying pan. Most pancakes are quick breads; some use a yeast-raised or fermented batter. Most pancakes are cooked one side on a griddle and flipped partway through to cook the other side.

  8. Buttermilk may be an acquired taste for drinking, but as a base for low calorie salad dressings it’s a star. Tart, tangy, smooth and creamy, it adds the perfect finish to greens, vegetables, and more.Buttermilk sounds like it would be a rich, high-fat, high-calorie product, but the name is misleading. There is no butter in buttermilk; traditionally, buttermilk was the liquid left over when cream was churned into butter. Modern buttermilk is a cultured product, created by adding a lactic acid bacteria culture to skim or non-fat milk and letting the mixture ferment for 12 to 14 hours.

  9. One of the main reasons why people prefer these over analog scales is the simple fact that these are significantly easier to read. Most analog scales are difficult to read due to the tiny measurements that you have to read and then try to figure out which tiny measurement the arm is at, and finally comprehend how much you weigh.

  10. If you’re in the mood for a buttermilk-based dressing but have none on hand, you can even make your own. Adding one tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to a cup of milk will create a very usable substitute, as will adding two teaspoons of cream of tartar to a cup of milk. In most recipes you can also substitute an equal measure of plain yogurt for buttermilk.

  11. Cook the pancakes in a large frying pan or on a flat plate. Heat a little of the sunflower oil in the pan and when the oil is up to temperature, add the pancake mixture a tablespoon at a time. spread out the mixture a little in the pan. You should be able to cook 3 or 4 at a time in a large size frying pan. check each one after 3 or 4 minutes and when they are a golden colour on the bottom, turn them over to cook the other side for another 3 or 4 minutes until they are golden brown on both sides.
