Multi-grain Blueberry Pancakes

中文菜谱: 蓝莓杂粮PANCAKE

Summer is my favorite season in Michigan because of the blueberries!  

 

It is our tradition to go blueberry picking in a nearby local blueberry farm.

The blueberry season is just starting.  You can see there are many more berries to come.

We each pick a full bucket.

Now let’s cook some multi-grain blueberry pancakes!

Ingredients:

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup multi-grain flour
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch of salt
1 to 2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil/ melted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3  to 1cup fresh blueberries
honey/ maple syrup
powdered sugar

* I grind my own multi-grain flour.  It is posted before.

 

Directions:

Add egg, buttermilk, oil and vanilla extract to a big measuring cup or bowl. 

Whisk together

Shit together all purpose flour, multi-grain flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. 

Add shifted flour to the egg milk mixture.  Whisk just until the dry flour is gone.  Don’t over mix because the more you whisk, the more gluten will form, and the chewier your pancakes will get.

Add fresh blueberrie

Heat the griddle to 350. 

Add batter.  We are using a non-stick griddle so I skip oil spray.  If you use a cast iron griddle or stainless steel pan, oil spray will be a life saver! O(∩_∩)O~ 

Let them cook on one side until you see a lot of bubbles, flip the pancakes.  It takes about more or less than one minute.

Top the pancakes with powder sugar, more fresh blueberries and honey or maple syrup O(∩_∩)O~
