blueberry pancakes, 2nd edition

July 21st, 2008

bbpanckcakes0708.jpgI hope you had a great weekend. It was disgustingly hot in New York this weekend, so we tried to spend as much time as we could in air conditioning. We did manage to make it out to the market though and it was pretty dreamy. Everything is in abundance and it’s hard to resist most of it.I made some blueberry pancakes a while ago that kind of rocked my world. We had guests staying with us, and since I’d just purchased some blueberries, I thought it would be a perfect time to try them out again. I quietly started making them and soon the apartment filled with a delightful scent and people started waking. Once I’d finished making the last one, we all sat down and devoured the goodness. My secret is to add a little honey, vanilla and cinnamon to the batter so they come out with a lovely, just slightly sweet flavor. Pair that with the fresh juicy blueberries and it’s a match made in heaven. They were just the thing to start out the day with.

    Kelly, Jessica used your recipe this morning (substituting cherry halves for blueberries, because that’s what we had on hand). They were the best pancakes I’ve ever eaten! And I consider myself, and my belly, pancake aficionados. Thanks for this! She posted about the breakfast here: http://www.foodmayhem.com/2008/07/sunday-cherry-pancakes.php
