The weekends in our home are all about family time. With the rush of an early morning school schedule during the week, we are always running out the door. We seem to never have time to sit and eat breakfast as a family. My family and I always look forward to family breakfast time on the weekends together. I love whipping up something special for them. Pancakes are such a family favorite in our home. Here is one of their favorites on a cold winter morning. Homemade blueberries pancakes with warm homemade blueberry syrup.
Ingredients for blueberry pancakes –
1 1/4 unbleached flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 large farm fresh egg
1 1/4 milk or buttermilk(optional)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup blueberries
Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, in another small mixing bowl mix all wet ingredients. Combine dry & wet ingredients together. No worries ,if your batter is slightly a little lumpy. Next , heat your skillet on medium heat. (don’t forget to grease you pan with butter or oil of your choice.) Using your ladle , pour your batter (my kids love silver dollar size) adding 4-5 blueberries then cook one side till you start to see the pancake batter begin to have tiny bubbles, using your spatula flip and cook other side untill a little golden .
Ingredients for blueberry syrup –
1 cup blueberries
1 cup warm water
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice (optional)
In a small saucepan , over low heat add blueberries, sugar, and water. Whisk together untill sugar is dissolved .(about 5 minutes) Then increase heat to medium heat , till it reaches a gentle boil. Continue to stir untill syrup starts to thicken . (about 15 minutes)
If desired, whisk lemon juice into syrup. Serve warm or cool. Hope you enjoy your warm blueberries pancakes and syrup.
