Cornmeal and blueberries give buttermilk pancakes texture and lots of great flavor. Serve these pancakes with butter and maple syrup or a golden cane syrup.
Blueberry sauce would be wonderful on these pancakes as well.
Feel free to use fresh or frozen blueberries in this recipe.
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 cup Canola oil or vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 3/4 to 1 cup milk, low fat is okay
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- oil for the griddle or skillet
- Heat the oven to 200 F to keep early batches of pancakes warm, if desired.
- Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar; set aside.
- In a bowl, whisk together the oil, eggs, buttermilk, and 3/4 cup milk.
- Combine the dry mixture with the milk mixture, stirring just until blended. Add a little more milk if too thick. Fold the blueberries into the batter.
- Grease a griddle or skillet with oil and set over medium heat.
- Measure about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and drop on the hot griddle.
- When the bubbles are breaking all over the surface of the pancakes and the edges look dry, flip to brown the other side.
- If desired keep the finished pancakes warm on a plate or pan in a preheated 200 F oven (or warming drawer) while you make subsequent batches.
Makes about 12 to 15 pancakes, depending on size.
- Use an ice cream scoop or measuring cup to make perfectly uniform pancakes.
- Add crunch with 1/4 cup of finely chopped pecans or walnuts.
- Use egg substitute or egg whites to replace the eggs, if desired. Use 1/4 cup of egg substitute for each whole egg, or substitute 3 egg whites for the 2 eggs.
- Don't press down on a pancake after you flip it. That will compress the pancake and make it flat and heavy.
- Freeze extra pancakes in freezer bags separated with wax paper squares. Reheat frozen pancakes on a baking sheet in a 325 F oven for about 7 to 9 minutes, or until hot. If they're fairly thick and sturdy, pop them in the toaster.
