Curt's Blueberry Pancake Recipe


My son cooked my breakfast! 

One favorite meal of the day is breakfast, with all the pancake recipes out there we have tried, Curt always comes back to the one he grew up with. He definitely adapted this one to be even better, with the addition of lemon juice. The texture is light and crispier than the original. I just love having my kids learn the art of cooking and starting new adaptions of their own... what a great breakfast we all had together!




Batter:
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup sifted flour plus 1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
butter to grease griddle

Fruit suggestions: To be added to the tops while cooking on your griddle : blueberries, banana, strawberries, berries of choice raspberry or blackberry, chocolate chips or even our favorite spread with nutella!

Optional toppings: cinnamon and sugar mixed, powdered sugar for garnish

In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. In a small bowl, beat together egg, milk oil, vanilla and lemon juice. Stir into flour mixture.

  Heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.


 Brown on one side, add blueberries to the open top before flipping, flip, cook until pancake is browned on other side then garnish and serve hot.  Thanks Curt!  We loved these and look who else did too the Fonz!

Great to see that all those years of cooking for Curt has finally paid off-now it is payback time! While I know you like to cook, it is nice to have someone cook for you once in a while.
These pancakes do look like a wonderful treat for breakfast-talent in the kitchen does run in the family. Enjoy this special time of the year with your family!

How sweet! Great breakfast to wake up to!

The lemon juice is a grand addition - must try that - I do envision lighter with a touch of crisp around the edges. I'm a sucker for a cat picture. Just so you know.

There's nothing better than spending time with our children, and it's even better when they cook! I love his addition of lemon, and the Fonz looks just like our Frisco. Love those orange tabby cats. Have a wonderful new year. I wish love and happiness for you and your family!

I love blueberry pancakes and prepare them for us sometimes. I have to be careful with my spouse's blood sugar excesses. They are great when you put the blueberries atop the pancakes as they are poured onto the griddle, rather than added to the batter.
You should be proud, he done good yeah.
