Everyone is wondering how we find the time to cook and bake so much. We are not slaves to our kitchen, we just work as a team…four hands are much better than two:) So while I am sifting the dry ingredients, Josh is measuring out the liquids…or while Josh is making the dough, I am working on the sauce, etc. So recipes come together in no time! Josh is my side-kick. We do almost everything together. Being in the kitchen is so fun for us!
So with that said…I had nothing to do with this meal:) It was all Josh. I had to work late so he made me dinner all by his lonesome. He tries to cook for me a lot, but I usually won’t let him because I enjoy helping. I can’t relax if I know he is in the kitchen cooking up a storm. It is not fair to let him have all the fun! But this time I wasn’t home so he surprised me with a terrific meal.
We love having breakfast foods for dinner, sometimes it is too hard to cook a big meal in the mornings…except for on weekends. So when I walked in the door to the smell of pancakes cooking on the griddle, I was very excited. I was even more excited when I saw the plump blueberries inside. YUM!!!
Josh made Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes with the works. He knows I don’t like eggs that much but I do appreciate scrambled egg whites so he made those and some hashbrowns. He also cooked up some sausage for his plate. I don’t eat the stuff.
The meal was very tasty!! I have the greatest husband!!
Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes
1 cup flour (I use half whole wheat)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Pinch of cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk, plus 2 Tablespoons
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
Optional toppings-syrup, powdered sugar, jam, etc.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, powder, soda, salt, and cinnamon. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, oil, egg, and vanilla. Pour into flour mixture and stir lightly until just combined. The batter will be lumpy and that is OK! Grease a non-stick skillet and cook pancakes on medium heat. As soon as you pour the batter on the griddle, drop the blueberries on the pancake. Cook until the edges bubble. Flip and cook other side. Serve with syrup, etc. Really any toppings you want!
