Before I tell you about these pancakes I have to share with you something I found so amusing but yet cute and really put a smile on my face. Even though it meant I was not the popular one.
**Tip: If you have milk that is starting to go bad - don't toss it out. Save it to make these pancakes or any other baked good that may call for buttermilk or sour milk.
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup milk**
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- zest of 1 lemon
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in medium sized mixing bowl. In measuring cup measure milk, add egg and vanilla and whisk together with fork. Melt butter in microwave for 30 seconds.
- Pour milk mixture into flour mixture and whisk until flour is incorporated. Whisk in butter. Using 1/4 measure, pour batter onto hot griddle sprayed with cooking spray (or do like I did and use the bacon grease. I soak a little on a paper towel and rub it on my griddle). Turn heat to medium low. Place blueberries on top of pancake and press slightly to sink them into cake. When top of pancake starts to bubble and dry, flip pancake. Continue cooking for about 30-60 seconds until pancake is no longer wet inside. Serve with warmed maple syrup and extra blueberries.
