The Pancake Post

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner
I posted this recipe before, but since Kelly's Korner is linking up with favorite breakfast recipes I figured it'd be a great time to share it again. The recipe before is for berry pancakes (blueberry is my standard), but it can easily be adapted. My second favorite, or really maybe first, would be chocolate chips, and I do them the same way by adding the chips to each individual pancake instead of mixed through the batter. Enjoy!
Blueberry Pancakes
from Marion Cunningham's The Breakfast Book
Makes two dozen 4-inch pancakes (Although we'll normally half the recipe and that makes a perfect amount for the 2 of us)

2 eggs
5 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
4 teaspoons baking power
3/4 teaspoon salt

Put butter and milk in a small saucepan and warm over low heat until butter has melted. (I normally just do this in the microwave.) Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl until they are thoroughly blended. After the butter mixture cools slightly stir into eggs and mix well. Put the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into the bowl and stir with fork until well mixed.

Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir only until the dry ingredients are well moistened. Don't over mix.

Heat a griddle or skillet until a few drops of water dance on it, then lightly grease. Drop 2 or 3 tablespoons of batter for each pancake onto griddle and cook until bubbles break on the surface. Turn the pancake over and cook another 30 seconds, or until the bottom is lightly browned. Serve the pancake hot.

To make Berry Pancakes: Sprinkle 2 or 3 tablespoons of berries on top of each pancake after the pancake has cooked to the point where bubbles are breaking, gently pressing the berries down into the pancake with a spatula. Then flip and cook for about another 30 seconds.

  1. These look so good! You know...I've never made pancakes. I probably should change that, huh? Thanks for sharing the recipe! I hope you have a happy and safe 4th of July and that you are staying cool down there. I've heard that this summer has been a rough one already in the bayou state.
