On Brunch

Nothing is better than a lazy weekend morning.

Unless said morning involves pancakes.

With blueberries.

And pools of maple syrup.

Make them tomorrow.

Pancakes are what weekends are for.

To make pancakes for two hungry people, you will need:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 C plain, full-fat yogurt
  • 4 T milk
  • 3 T butter, melted and cooled slightly (more for the pan, too)
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon zest (never optional when blueberries in pancakes are concerned)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 C whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 C all purpose flour
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 T plus 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. table salt
  • 1/2 C blueberries
  • 1 small banana, peeled, chopped

Whisk the eggs, yogurt, milk, butter, lemon zest and vanilla in a large bowl.  Beat the flours, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl.  Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet until almost combined.  For a reason unknown to me, lumps in pancake batter are encouraged.  Go with it.  Fold in the blueberries.

Heat some butter on a griddle or skillet.  When it’s nice and hot, add batter by the 1/4 cupful, leaving plenty of space between the pancake (another pancake science thing I don’t understand).  When the edges of the pancake start to look dry and small bubbles start forming on the top, use a spatula to flip the pancakes.  Cook for 1-2 more minutes on each side.  I find the skillet always needs another swipe of butter in between rounds, and the heat needs to be turned down slowly as you go.

  1. Wooden Nickels is very much looking forward to having these on the 29th! I guess you won’t be able to share in them, though, since you’ll be on your way to the dentist and wouldn’t want to be caught with blueberries in your teeth! Thanks, I accept the offer!
