Extraordinary Blueberry Pancakes

Extraordinary Blueberry Pancakes

Serves 6 to 8

No ordinary pancakes, these are made with a touch of cornmeal and ground oats for unbeatable texture. We love them with blueberries, but they are also good without, with simply a dab of fresh butter and lots of pure maple syrup.

  • 1 1/3 cups unbleached flour
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats, finely ground in a food processor or blender
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons expeller-pressed canola oil
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk, more if needed
  • 2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)

In a large mixing bowl, combine both flours, cornmeal, ground oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and oil together. Stir in buttermilk. Stir together liquid and dry ingredients until just combined. Do not over mix. Add more buttermilk to thin batter if necessary. Fold blueberries into batter.

Pour 1/4 cup of the batter on a lightly greased, pre-heated griddle or skillet. Cook until bottoms are golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes longer, or until pancakes are cooked through. Continue with remaining batter.
